Colorado Youth Outdoors

Colorado Youth Outdoors exists to help strengthen relationships between youth and their parents through traditional outdoor recreation. CYO has grown from a small, local afterschool program to a regional outdoor education facility that serves thousands from Cheyenne south to Colorado Springs. CYO’s programs engage parents, mentors and teens in outdoor activities, including fishing, trap shooting, fly tying, archery, and more. Families who participate in our programs grow closer as they discover new things about natural resources, outdoorsmanship, and most importantly each other.
