Campership Request Form
Climbing and mountain biking have a limited number of openings. These are filled on a first-come basis, so advanced registration is strongly recommended.
There are several steps to Register for Camp Programs:
Camp Laramie Peak was purchased in 1920 by a group of volunteers wanting
a place to take Scouts in the wilderness. The rugged terrain, rambling
brooks, and mountain backdrop was the ideal location.
Camp Laramie Peak is located northwest of Wheatland, Wyoming, near the
base of Laramie Peak, in the Medicine Bow National Forest. The elevation
at the Camp is approximately 6800 feet, which means we have cool evenings
and mornings. Our temperatures during camp range from the 40's at night
to the 90's during the day.
SPECIAL SCOUT AND UNIT AWARDS
Individual Scouts will have an opportunity to earn the following awards:
- Project SOAR Award
(Save Our American Resources)
