The Black Hills Natural Resources Youth Camp is hosted by the Campbell County Conservation District, the Weston County Natural Resources District, and the Powder River Conservation District. It takes place annually the first week of June and is open to both boys and girls ages 9-13. 

The camp takes place at Mallo Camp, which is owned and maintained by Weston County, Wyoming. The Lodge is relatively new and has a very modern kitchen, large dining/recreation area and meeting rooms. The campers will stay in cabins with chaperones. There are shower facilities located near separated groupings of cabins to allow for easy access.

Go to Mallo Camp’s website for more information on the facilities.

There are excellent places for fun and learning including a scenic canyon with Stockade Beaver Creek flowing through it and a well-stocked trout pond!
