IMPORTANT NOTES (PLEASE READ)

Age Requirements
This camp is for men, ages 12 and up, who would like to catch Wyoming trout on the fly. 
IMPORTANT: Because men aged over 18 will attend the Catholic Men’s Fly Fishing Camp, any young men of the ages 12-17 MUST be accompanied by their father.
Meals and Food Allergies

All meals are included. 

Unfortunately, there is little to no ability for staff at Box R to work around more than one non-severe food allergy at a time while maintaining the nutritional requirements of campers. 

Lodging
Comfortable indoor lodging is included for campers.
Mobility and Physical

Some limited mobility and other special needs may be accommodated, on a case-by-case basis, dependent upon the limitations of facilities at Box R. We strive to be as inclusive of special needs as possible (for example, non-violent men and boys with intellectual disabilities and basic life skills—self-feeding and hygiene—can be accommodated, but those who require a caretaker for basic life skills cannot). Please call to discuss special needs, as they need to be evaluated on an individual, case-by-case basis by camp staff. Be prepared to discuss any and all special needs openly and with all relevant information so no campers arrive at the ranch needing to be turned away.

A doctor's physical not older than 6 months is recommended, but not required.

Pricing

All camp prices include all food, lodging, and necessary sporting equipment. Campers are responsible for basic gear like hygiene gear, sleeping bags and pillows, and for arranging their own travel to and from Box R Ranch. If you would like to know more, you may contact Ben Christensen at 830-613-0629 or email him at tack23@gmail.com.

Campers 13 years and younger do not require a fishing license. 
Campers 14-16 need to purchase an annual youth fishing license (3.00 for WY residents, 15.00 for non-residents).
