    Camp Buffalo Bill lies seven miles east of Yellowstone National Park in the Shoshone National Forest and has provided a quality summer camp experience for members of the Boy Scouts of America from Wyoming and across the country since 1949.

    The camp is ideal for troops wishing to have both a Scout camp experience and tour the nation's first national park. Camp Buffalo Bill is also the home of the Yellowstone High Adventure Outpost, a high adventure program where scouts can participate in one of four core areas: Trek, Climbing, Paddlesports, and Winter.

    When not in merit badge classes, scouts can participate in our camp wide games, open program area time, go on a hike, fish in our stocked pond, or many other available activities.

    Plan Your Adventure

    Yellowstone High Adventure Outpost

    The Yellowstone High Adventure Outpost provides a premier High Adventure experience for independent crews and scouts at CBB who are ready for the adventure of a lifetime in the largest contiguous wilderness in the lower 48.

    Participants can choose an expedition from our four program areas: Trek, Paddle, Climb, & Winter:

    Scouts will travel through the 2.7 million acres of wilderness in Yellowstone National Park and the Shoshone National Forest. Trek guides will accompany your crew for the duration of your trek, helping you refine your wilderness camping and travel skills.

    YHAO Absaroka Trek
    Our signature program. This backpacking program travels across the rugged Absaroka (Ab-sor-ka) range of Northwest Wyoming. Participants hike between 7-12 miles a day through the 704,529 acres of the Washakie Wilderness, some of the most remote territory in the Lower 48. This area ranges in elevation from 6000 to more than 13,000 feet.

    YHAO Yellowstone Trek
    Treks are usually 5 days long and cover approximately 30-45 miles. Participants hike between 5-10 miles a day through the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park. Our treks have a distinct wilderness flavor that is not found in other high adventure programs. Travel on Yellowstone treks is 90% on trail and groups stay at established backcountry campsites.

    YHAO Paddle Adventure
    We currently offer a full Whitewater Rafting program and are working to expand our offerings to include Whitewater kayaking and sea kayaking.

    • Whitewater
    • Climb & Rafting
    • Bighorn Canyon - 50 mile kayak
    • Yellowstone Lake Kayaking
    • Shoshone Lake Kayaking

    YHAO Climbing Adventure
    Climbers will participate in an intensive program that takes scouts on climbing routes and boulder problems ranging from 5.0 to 5.12 in difficulty on granite, limestone and dolomite throughout the Shoshone Canyon. Our indoor rock wall is also utilized in the beginning stages of the program or during inclement weather. Climbers will also have multiple chances to rappel down multiple descents.

    Participants will complete the requirements for the Climbing Merit Badge and most of the requirements for the Venturing Ranger Mountaineering elective.

    YHAO Winter Adventure
    Experience the magic of a Yellowstone winter at YHAO. Scouts can participate in snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing, winter survival and much, more. Sleeping Giant Ski Area is only 3 miles away.

    Just out the back door to our basecamp lies endless wilderness possibilities. Travel off the beaten path while pulling your gear in one of our equipment sleds. Practice sleeping out in a snow shelter that you helped build with your fellow scouts. After this, you will be a skilled winter traveler ready for adventure in the 4th season.

    Yellowstone High Adventure Tour Yellowstone Tour
    U.S. National Park

    Great nearby recreational activities include famous ski resorts, fishing, whitewater rafting, hunting, sightseeing at national parks, hiking, biking, snowmobiling and horseback riding.

    There are over 1,000 miles of safe, well-marked backcountry trails in the park. Many ranger/naturalist conducted hikes help you to enjoy these.

    Wyoming Tetons High Adventure Tour Grand Tetons Tour
    U.S. National Park

    The Grand Tetons are tall sharp peaks created by fault-block action. The mountains and valley show abundant evidence of glacial activity.

    What makes these peaks so inspiring is their lack of foothills which usually obscure the view. These peaks rise steeply some 5000 to 8000 feet from the valley floor. They consist primarily of granite rock.

    Mount Washburn Hike - 10,243 ft
    North of Lake Yellowstone

    6.2 mile round trip hike (10KM!) from Dunraven Pass.

    From an elevation of 10,243 feet (3,107 m), Mount Washburn offers panoramic views of about 20 to 50 miles (32 to 80 km) in all directions. During July, wildflowers carpet the slopes. Look for bighorn sheep. The southern trail starts at the Dunraven Pass Trailhead and the northern trail starts at the Chittenden Road parking area. Both climb steadily about 1,400 feet (425 m). Conditions at the summit are typically colder and windier than at the trailheads, and afternoon storms are common. Carry an extra layer of warm clothing and wind/rain gear.

    Uncle Tom's Trail
    Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

    Uncle Tom’s Trail is a wonderful trail that takes you from the top of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone to the base of the 308-foot-high Lower Falls. You can almost always see a rainbow cutting through the falls’ powerful splash and mist. Tackling the 328 steps on the way down is a breeze–just remember that you have to come back up.

    Natural Bridge Trail
    Yellowstone Lake

    Very popular 1.5 trail, easily accessible, crosses a rich landscape of the park. Here the waters have carved a small natural bridge - an opening 30 feet across, topped by a narrow span of dark-colored, lichen-covered rock, on which grows a lone pine tree.
