Cheyenne - Kids who like nature and wildlife will have the chance get outside this summer to explore with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Game and Fish is hosting a brand new wildlife conservation and outdoor recreation 3-day summer day camp, “Camp Wild,” for students entering 5th and 6th grade.
Camp Wild is held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Sessions will include hands-on learning about wildlife, habitats, aquatic ecology, navigation, basic survival, team builders, and in most locations, fishing and/or archery.
