- SERVING PEOPLE -
For many, it was their experiences as youth that influenced hunters,anglers, and wildlife professionals to become who they are today. For many of them — and their children — Game and Fish’s camps are among the most comprehensive education experiences available. Game and Fish employees are passionately dedicated to providing top-notch conservation education statewide.
It is with much deliberation and anticipation that Game and Fish will take a year off from the Youth Conservation Camp and the Forever Wild Educator Workshops. During that year, we’ll make camp facilities safer, camp content more relevant, and the camp experience more meaningful. The team will put its expertise, passion and hearts into planning camp experiences for 2014 — and beyond — that will promote the enjoyment, pursuit, and conservation of Wyoming’s wildlife for generations to come.
Any Wyoming resident 14-17 years of age, with preference given to those who have not previously attended the camp, is eligible to apply.
Hands-on skill activities and other educational opportunities for all camp participants, regardless of physical ability or experience.
Canoeing, fly fishing, flycasting, outdoor survival, wilderness hike, first aid, wildlife photography, wildlife stewardship, wildlife watching, habitat education, compass and orienteering, rappelling, natural resource careers, shotgun, .22 rifle, archery, black powder rifles, quiz bowl, outdoor skills competition and much, much more all FREE and fun.

The Youth Camp is held at Whiskey Mountain Wildlife Conservation Camp located near Trail Lake, approximately ten miles southeast of Dubois, Wyoming. The camp located on historic bighorn sheep winter range is situated on Torrey Creek about one mile from the Fitzpatrick Wilderness Trailhead. Camp participants live in assigned cabins with family style meals served in a main dining hall. Classes are held outdoors. Campers must furnish their own personal gear. Each camper will be required to make their own transportation arrangements.
