Community Groups

Community Groups are more than welcome to visit us!  Due to recent program changes, our scheduling is now different than it has been in the past. University groups are given priority registration at the start of each semester and then registration is open up to everyone. Community reservations go from October 16 2013 through December 20, 2013.  And February 6, 2014 through April 11, 2014.  You may call 5 business days prior to your desired reservation date.  If not in use by BYU-Idaho then you will be able to schedule.  This does not apply April - September.

*Due to the summer youth programs we can not accomodate any community groups from April to Sept.

Reservations for 2013 Fall semester (September - December) for community users will begin on October 26. Community users may fill out a request (after October 26) here.

We will contine to make improvements to our website and information. If you still have questions please contact us via e-mail and we will get back to you! Thank you!
