After climbing, it’s the perfect time to head to local Boise business for a post-camp snack. Our friends at Dentistry for Children shared with us their favorite locations for desserts and snacks in the Treasure Valley. They reminded us that as long as you drink water while eating, brush your teeth after eating sugary foods, and make them more of a fun, spontaneous treat, you and your child can kick back and satisfy your sweet tooth. Check out these local dessert shops below.
