There are many beautiful trails surrounding Mill Hollow and we will be adding individual details regarding each trail.
Meanwhile, here is a temporary master trail map.
You can also ask any employee for an informational pamphlet while you're at the camp.
"No offense to family, friends and Xboxes waiting at home, but a lot of kids really didn't want to leave the Mill Hollow Outdoor Education Center last Friday afternoon. Three days of summer camp high in the Uinta Mountains zipped by too fast."
"Perhaps it's the cheesy campfire songs sung by thousands of people over five decades. Or maybe it's the thrill of chasing panhandling squirrels, the addictive powers of boondoggling or the exhilarating explorations to distant lakes and pure nature."
Mill Hollow is a 3 day, 2 night camp, with sessions running Monday - Wednesday and Wednesday - Friday during June & July.

Don't worry, the Mill Hollow counselors will go over these rules with you at camp and help you remember them! Reading them now will help you prepare for camp, though.
In case of FIRE OR SMOKE in the building: Students will calmly leave the building using the closest exit away from the fire. Go directly to the volleyball court.
In case of an EARTHQUAKE: Students will DROP, COVER and HOLD ON. Three minutes after shaking ends - calmly leave the building. Go directly to the volleyball court.
In case of a POWER FAILURE: Remain calm; follow the directions of your Cabin Counselor or Teacher.
Students are NOT to use the restroom in the lodge. They may use all other restroom facilities.
We are guests of the United States Forest Service and therefore we cannot remove, deface, injure or destroy any plant, animal, rock or man-made structure in the forest.
Please help to keep Mill Hollow clean, all litter must be placed in the garbage cans or other suitable containers.
All students must stay with their teachers. In case you do get separated and become lost, walk down hill until you find a road and then stay near it. The only exception to this rule is if you have already crossed the ridge road, then you must walk back up hill until you come back to the ridge road and stay there until you are picked up. Do not accept a ride from anyone, unless you know them or recognize them from The Center. All Mill Hollow Staff will carry Mill Hollow Identification When near The Center, stay within sight and sound of the buildings - never leave The Center alone.
Report any accident or illness to your teacher, Cabin Counselor or a manager immediately.
A short period of rest after meals is both desirable and beneficial. Heavy exercises (running) should not be done the first day after you arrive at The Center because of the high altitude.
While in the vicinity of the Center, rest rooms are provided and must be used.
All kinds of fireworks, matches and other combustible materials are forbidden at Mill Hollow and the surrounding forest area. Please report all unauthorized fires to teachers, or a member of the Mill Hollow staff at once.
The use of tobacco, drinking of alcoholic beverages, use of illegal substances, gambling, viewing pornographic materials or the use of firearms by students is strictly prohibited.
While hiking on established trails please remain on the trails and do not take shortcuts. It may save a little time, but causes a great amount of damage to the environment.
We must insist on the separation of boys and girls inside the cabins day or night.
Respect other student’s property, climbing in and out of cabin windows is not allowed. Adult supervisors must be present when students are inside the cabins.
Consideration of others, politeness and friendliness should be extended to all students and staff.
Participants should promptly perform duties assigned by Staff, Teachers or the Manager.
Throwing rocks, sticks other objects, or harassing the animals will not be tolerated.
Do drink plenty of liquids but do not drink out of streams because of possible contamination.
We must ask each of you to walk only on the sidewalks and paths around The Center area - please do not walk across the grass to short cut.
The sewer lagoons at Mill Hollow should be considered contaminated and potentially dangerous. Students should not go inside the fence.
This is a multi-use forest area. Cattle and sheep grazing are part of the forest management program. Do not disturb those animals.
Items that are for sale in the Trading Post (located in the basement of Cabin 5) include the following: songbooks, trail guides, boondoggle, t-shirts and some personal items. Prices are comparable to those in the Salt Lake Valley. Students are encouraged to use their money wisely and with restraint. Aluminum cans and plastic pop bottles may be returned to the Trading Post for a five cent refund if they are marked and crushed. They are then hauled down to Park City to be recycled.
Because of a limited water supply during some dry periods, it may be necessary to have the cooperation of the students to help conserve water by restricting showers, hair washing, etc. Please do not waste water at any time.
Meal schedules: Breakfast - 7:30 & 8:00 a.m.; Lunch - 12:00 & 12:30; Dinner -5:00 & 5:30. Your schedule will be assigned when you arrive.
Games and recreation time will be from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. under the direction of your Cabin Counselor.
Teachers are responsible for letting students into the cabins during the day time instructional periods.
Be careful, have fun, and discover how learning can be an adventure!
Fret not, the current water tank is working perfectly and supplies Mill Hollow with plenty of water. However, current Forest Service
regulations require us to have a tank that holds at least 100,000 gallons of water. This is a very large expense, so we are raising money
in order to satisfy this requirement.
All donation sizes are helpful, so please contribute what you can!
After clicking "Review Donation and Continue", please type "Water tank" in the "Add details about your donation" field.
We always appreciate people who give of their time to help improve Mill Hollow! There are plenty of volunteer opportunities around the Center -

We also accept volunteers for all positions listed on the employment page, as long as you meet the minimum qualifications and agree to the
