Wolf Camp was founded in 1996 by Chris Chisholm who oversees every course with his wife Kim McKillip Chisholm. Instructors are highly trained teachers for all ages and learning styles. Our goal is create profound experiences and challenges that result in success, self-reliance, deeper understanding of others, and a solid respect for nature.
Our top safety record has been achieved through excellent risk management, and our efficient management style allows for affordable programs, personalized attention, and responsiveness to the needs of students and family. Our top chefs choose local, organic ingredients and cater to all dietary needs, supporting the physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being of participants.
