COVID-19 Statement

As the COVID-19 (aka: the Coronavirus) grows as a public health concern, we will be doing our part to limiting the spread of the virus. Due to the ever changing conditions of public health concerns, we will be monitoring the situation over the next month and follow Wyoming and CDC guidelines.  Because our events are occurring far enough in the future that we are uncertain what June will bring, we will reach out early in May, if contingency plans are necessary. We appreciate your understanding and we are very hopeful that our June events will not be affected. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Since we still anticipate holding the camps, we are moving forward with registration.  Should we have to cancel the camps, we will provide you with a full refund.

Thanks in advance. Please let us know if you have questions.
