Cheyenne - Get away to Whiskey Mountain with your family this summer or send your youth for a week of summer fun. The best part? The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has all the details handled. Game and Fish is hosting a series of overnight family camps — as well as overnight camps for youth — this summer at the department’s top-notch outdoor educational facility near Dubois.

Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp is a great place to build knowledge in the outdoors and have a whole lot of fun,” said Ashley Leonard, conservation educator coordinator. “You’ll learn more about hiking, fishing, canoeing, photography, trees, fish, wildlife and more. No one gets too old for camp!”

Full details, packing information, a listing of activities and registration forms are available on the website. All camps are subject to local COVID-19 health guidelines.

Family camp is an overnight experience for family groups to build confidence in their outdoor skills. The cost to attend is $100 per person for 3-day camps and $150 per person for 4-day camps, which includes meals and lodging. Childcare is not provided, and participants must be age 10 and up. The deadline to register is May 15. Camp dates include:
