Paradise Point Summer Camp

Located on beautiful Payette Lake and nestled in the mountain valley of McCall, this Idaho gem is loved by all who visit. 

A centerpiece of the mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Idaho, Paradise Point Summer Camp was established in 1935. (Click here for more information on the history of Paradise Point!)

Paradise Point Summer Camp provides a life changing experience for campers of all ages. We have several summer camp options for youth, teens and adults and all faith backgrounds are welcome. All participants enjoy freshly prepared, healthy meals and challenging activities while having tons of fun! Paradise Point fosters the perfect opportunity for families, friends and youth to come together in a fun, safe and spirit-filled environment. Campers are forever touched by God in this place of beauty, joy, solitude and good company.

Paradise Point is a place for everyone to participate in Christian formation in a safe and nurturing community. The highly trained staff works hard to provide a fun, yet safe environment for all who choose to attend. All our camp staff is professionally trained in CPR and First Aid and have gone through child abuse prevention training. Professionally certified staff is also employed for the waterfront, archery range, and the ropes course and climbing wall. Come experience the ministry of Paradise Point and feel the magic of camp!     



Paradise Point is seeking responsible and caring leaders who live enthusiastically and care deeply about building relationships with others. We are looking for staff members who want to impact the lives of children positively and who understand the importance of their position in a child's development. It is important for the staff to have the ability to communicate honestly and openly, to stay positive when challenged, to problem solve creatively and to participate energetically. Working at camp is demanding and staff members need to know how to stay balanced and how to deal with stress. Paradise Point looks for staff members who enjoy having fun and who inspire others to do the same.

All applicants must be at least 18 years old by June 18, 2017 and are required to attend staff training. The youth camp season runs from June through the beginning of August, with some staff members that stay on through the end of September. All staff will be certified in American Red Cross CPR and First Aid (a training course is provided during staff training). This certification course will be offered at no cost to you. If you are interested in lifeguarding and do not currently have a lifeguard certification, we will hold a Lifeguard certification course during staff training as well. Certified lifeguards are paid a higher weekly rate and the training is incredibly valuable. 



Volunteers are an incredibly integral part of Paradise Point. The enthusiasm and energy they bring to camp creates a fun and spiritually complete environment for the campers and staff. Volunteering at Paradise Point is not only an opportunity to spend some relaxing time at camp, but also to serve the church and spend time with the youth of the Diocese. We truly appreciate all of the volunteers that come to camp to share their spirit and dedicate their time to Paradise Point.

Paradise Point Summer Camp Reviews

Paradise Point, McCall, Idaho - you should go!!

I worked at Paradise Point for two summers in 2012 and 2013 and it was so much fun! Camp is in a beautiful location on Payette Lake and ran by the most genuine and friendly people you could ever meet!! My experience have stayed with me and I made friends for life there.
I would 100% recommend especially for families and for those who want to take time out and reflect and enjoy themselves. The activities on the lake were my favourite.
