We want Sun Valley to be a magical place for everyone in your family. Our kids’ camps let children discover their own adventure within the safe environments of Sun Valley Village. When the golf course or the spa are on mom and dad’s program, the kids create their own vacations under the supervision of the Sun Valley PlaySchool and Day Camp programs. Older children are given more freedom, to explore, make new friends and reconnect with the family when it’s time for dinner and evening entertainment — all without leaving Sun Valley Village.
