This summer, Camp Laramie Peak will launch the new Boy Scouts of America ATV program. The goal of the ATV program is safety and teaching Scouts basic operation of the vehicle while respecting the environment, and let’s not forget fun! Camp Laramie Peak recently acquired six Polaris Phoenix 200 ATVs to offer the ATV Safety Institute (ASI) Rider Training Course required by the Boy Scouts of America for ATV operation. This is a half-day training for youth and adults.
Riders will be provided a helmet, goggles, gloves and chest protection, although you may bring your own. The program requires riders to wear long pants, a long-sleeve shirt and over-the-ankle boots.
Scouts or Venturers must be age 14 or older to drive an ATV.
In addition to the ATV program, Camp Laramie Peak is the home of Xtreme Scouting, which includes two ziplines, mountain boarding, BMX biking, mountain biking, rock climbing, shooting sports, first-year camper program, outdoor skills and nature program, handicraft and much more.
This year, Camp Laramie Peak is partnering with Camp Gernsey (Wyoming Military Base) to allow Scouts to experience their simulators, obstacle and compass courses.
A free day is built into your week at Camp Laramie Peak to visit the Fort Laramie National Historic Site.
Camp Laramie Peak is located northwest of Wheatland, Wyoming, near the base of Laramie Peak in the Medicine Bow National Forest. As you arrive you will see real buffalo. This is a traditional camp and units establish their own campsites among the boulders of Camp Laramie Peak.
So get ready to ride! This is your opportunity for a great summer camp experience in the Wyoming Rocky Mountain Range. Check it out: camps.longspeakbsa.org
