Gem State Academy Beautifies Camp Ida-Haven

In what has become an awesome yearly tradition, buses headed north to Camp Ida-Haven, located on Payette Lake in McCall, to spend time in orientation, service, fun and fellowship. The big service project this year was laying sod along the camp waterfront. The juniors and seniors put the sod down in less than two hours, while freshman and sophomores stacked wood in town and helped in the horse corrals.

“It was amazing to see it come together so fast and completely change the look of the waterfront,” said Mike Schwartz, principal. “We have a great group of kids this year who want to share that positive spirit and make a difference.”
