A fun-filled week in the mountains
June 15-19, 2020

Four days at YMCA of the Bighorns that’s fun, educational and filled with outdoor adventures to help 8th graders meet the challenges of transitioning to high school.

The CVC created CampFIRE (formerly known as Youth CiViC Leadership Camp) in 2008.  We take 8th graders to the Big Horn Mountains in partnership with the Sheridan County YMCA every June to learn about themselves, identify their leadership skills and engage in fun, challenging activities to use them most effectively.

Camp is open to all Sheridan and Johnson County 8th graders and is free to all attendees.  It takes place over 4 days and 3 nights at YMCA of the Bighorns.

In the campers’ words:
“My time at camp has helped me change the way I view others.”
Happy Camper
“This camp has taught me to lead in a new way.”
Happy Camper
“I learned that quiet leaders really do have a lot to say in a different way.”
Happy Camper
“Outstanding adventures with new friends.”
