Brush Creek Ranch Student Experiences

Since 2011, Big Shoulders Fund has partnered with Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming to provide our students with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that explore new adventures, discover the great outdoors, and push them to do more than they ever thought they could.

Starting with just a spark of an idea to open a camp for middle-schoolers, continued interest and excitement has fanned the flames growing the initial singular camp into a multi-faceted suite of programs for students of all ages. Today, nearly 300 students travel to Wyoming each summer to participate in one of three core programs: Staddle Camp, Junior Counselors, and Outdoors Bound.
