2016 Pre-Order T-shirts are here
If your troop would like to have a Camp T-shirt pre-printed with your troop #, city and state, us the order form at the link below and place your order. There will be additional designs available at camp.

We are compiling the information you need to register for activities at Camp Laramie Peak. One of the program options is to visit the National Guard Base in Guernsey. There are many exciting activities there that will interest Scouts and leaders alike! This will be a day away from camp for you to do something out of the ordinary. There are also many other historic sites in the area. You can check them out using this link: Wyoming Tourism
Some things to consider are:
- Fort Laramie Historic Site
- Douglas, WY, is home to the jackalope and there is the large statue downtown. Could be a fun photo op for the Scouts. There is also Fort Fetterman there that they could visit and might find interesting to learn what it would have been like at such a crossroads on the Plains.
- Ayres Natural Bridge could be a great place for a picnic lunch
- Oregon Trail wagon ruts
- Signature Rock at Register Cliffs
- Casper is a little farther to travel but if you’re willing there is Independence Rock on the way there and once in Casper, you will find the Trails Museum (really worth the visit!) and Fort Casper, small but with an interesting history.
Home of Extreme Scouting
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.
SUMMER CAMP FEE PAYMENT SCHEDULE
It is the responsibility of each unit to have their payments in to the Greeley Office (either by mail, in person or online) by the following deadlines:
$50 per person non-refundable deposit is due by December 1 or at time of registration, whichever is later.
1/2 of your balance of fees due is due by February 1.
Full fees are due by May 1.
Postmark will decide on-time payments for mailed checks, in-store receipt will determine on-time payments for personally delivered payments and date stamp for online payments will determine on-time payments. In all cases the payment must be int he Greeley office by specified date. Payment mailed or delivered to any other Council Office will not be counted on-time until they get to the Greeley Office so you will need to allow an extra week for that to happen.
The May 1 payment deadline is strictly enforced and any late payments will incur a $25 per person late fee. If the unit has paid their balance in full by May 1 and add to their numbers after that date, they will only be charged the late fee for the additions.

Orienteering, and Pioneering Merit Badges are offered.

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.
