Dano Youth Camp

We’re thrilled to see such overwhelming interest in the Dano Youth Camps for the upcoming summer! With so many eager applicants, we want to ensure that each application receives careful consideration. As a result, Field Camp Notifications will be sent out on May 13th, 2024. Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm for our camps!

Dano Youth Camp provides 8-day backpacking wilderness adventures to teenagers in the Park County, Wyoming area. Our camps seek to promote and foster character qualities in campers such as responsibility, courage, compassion, loyalty, honesty, friendship, persistence, hard work, self-discipline, and faith.

To be eligible to apply, campers must be 13 years or older. Camps are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, with a priority given to Park County residents. 

Our camps are unique in that we provide the equipment (tents, backpacks, camping gear, food, etc.) needed for the trip. The only requirement of the campers is to fill out the appropriate paperwork, make a commitment to the time frame, bring a few personal items, and be prepared for summer fun! There is no charge to participate.

Dano is a non-profit organization that is funded through grants, donations, and the sale of Dano Pottery. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity and contributions are tax-deductible. If you are interested in supporting Dano Youth Camp, please email
