Camp Laramie Peak is not your run of the mill scout camp. Troops get to experience the traditional camp experience including the merit badge camp program, one that has almost 100 years of history behind it, in addition to our newer specialty programs. Specialty programs include an outstanding first year camper Roaring Lion program, rock climbing, ziplines, mountain boarding and mountain biking.

Quality food prepared for you in the historic Pugsley Dining Hall. Extracurricular opportunities during the day and evening, for both youth and adults.

One the Nation’s Oldest Camps

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.

CLP serves as a wonderful laboratory for exploring and studying the great outdoors. The Camp Laramie Peak Nature Program includes the following Merit Badges: Astronomy, Environmental Science, Geology, and Mammal Study. The Environmental Science Merit Badge requires comprehension of complex concepts, so it is recommended for Scouts 13 and over.

CLP also offers opportunities for earning Merit badges on an Independent Study basis: Bird Study, Nature, and Reptile & Amphibian Study Merit Badges.

Traditional Scouting skills are the trademarks of the Outdoor Skills Department, where Camping, Emergency Preparedness, First Aid,

Orienteering, and Pioneering Merit Badges are offered.

Shooting Sports

The Shooting Sports Department offers Rifle Shooting and Shotgun Shooting Merit Badges. In addition, recreational Open Shooting is scheduled for each area. Both Shotgun Shooting and Rifle Shooting take a great deal of practice to qualify. Since Shotgun Shooting requires good upper body strength and fine motor skills, it is recommended for Scouts age 13 and over.

The Archery program at Camp Laramie Peak is made up of both the Archery Merit Badge and an extracurricular six target 3-D Field Archery Range. Because of the fine motor skills and upper body strength required, it is recommended that only Scouts age 13 and older participate.

Photography

The camp offers the di

gital option only on the Photography Merit Badge. Scouts will need to supply their own digital camera. As their final project, Scouts will work to put together the ‘Woods of Wisdom’, the Camp Laramie Peak newspaper. All troops will receive a copy of the newspaper before leaving camp.
