A fun-filled week in the mountains

2021 dates to be determined

Five days at Camp Roberts at YMCA of the Bighorns – 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 5 days and 4 nights at Camp Roberts in the Bighorn Mountains above Buffalo, Wyoming.

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.”

“I learned that quiet leaders really do have a lot to say in a different way.”
Happy Camper
