A note from Christi: Ta-Man-A-Wis (TAM) was closed a few years ago.  I'm not sure of the exact year, sometime between 2006-2009.  The council still has the lease.  A few months ago Silver Sage granted permission to a taskforce to begin the process of re-opening TAM. We hope to have it re-opened for troop use by the end of the summer.   However, using it for residents camp is several years away.
Thank you again for your webpage.  Please keep up the great work!

It takes a community to create a camp.
 The camp project was headed by the Idaho Falls Women's Club.

Camp Tendoy
Caribou National Forest, at the foot of Scout Mountain, 17 miles from Pocatello, ID
The area was leased from the US Forestry Service to the Boy Scouts from 1920 until 1946, then it was transferred to the Camp Fire Girls.
In 1953 the Girl Scouts gave up their permit to the nearby Nodding Pines campsite and began to share Camp Tendoy with the Camp Fire Girls.
