About us


Camp Sanders is organized to provide a wholesome environment and affordable facilities

for persons young and old to grow physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Here at Camp Sanders, we provide camp, retreat and conference facilities in picturesque southern Benewah County, Idaho.  Ministries, churches, non-profit and educational organizations utilize Camp Sanders for meetings, seminars, training classes and retreats in a comfortable, rustic rural setting of over 90 acres.  Indian Creek courses through the camp and provides the water for Gem Lake, a small recreational pond on the campgrounds.


We offer facilities for both small groups and groups as large as 175.  In addition to overnight accommodations which include dorms, cabins, and bunkhouses, the camp also provides meal services.  The camp has several small, medium and large group meeting venues including the Dining Hall, Lakeside Chapel, and in warm months, the historic Sanders Tabernacle (circa 1935) pictured below.


Sanders also has 12 RV spaces with electric hook-ups for those in your group that have campers or recreation vehicles. 


Our facility rates are among the lowest in the region.  We have endeavored to keep costs low so people can afford to get away from the proverbial "rat race" and enjoy a time of renewal and recreation.


Day use and winter camps are also available.  Whatever your retreat, camp or seminar needs are, Camp Sanders can provide in a low-cost manner. Contact Christy Bates Gallogly, Camp Manager, for rate information.  The camp phone is (208) 892-4842 or email at
