Wolf Camp was founded in 1996 by Chris Chisholm who still runs every course together with his wife Kim McKillip Chisholm. The physical, emotional, mental, and social health of students is our top priority, and we are able to achieve these priorities because all our staff are seasoned instructors honoring a common mission. Join us at classes, camps, workshops, expeditions and apprenticeships to experience lessons from our Wolf Journey Earth Conservation Courses which guide you into skills of the neighborhood naturalist, traditional herbalist, wildlife tracker, wilderness survival scout, ancient artisan, honorable hunter, plus sustainable living and environmental education.
Collaborations with The Tacoma Mountaineers and the Oregon Chapter Sierra Club: The Wolf College is beginning collaborations with The Tacoma Mountaineers and the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club – Columbia Group as part of our monthly class series. In addition to classes in Seattle, Kirkland, Puyallup & Vancouver, we will run monthly classes at the beautiful and environmentally renovated Tacoma Mountaineers building in Old Town Tacoma, and at the Sierra Club in Portland. Join us for our December Classes on Dealing with Climate Change – Lifestyle, Emergencies & Carbon Sequestration!
Northwest Nature – Guided Hikes: Kim was talking with Puyallup homeschool group facilitator Liberty Pierce during a plant craft harvesting class this fall when they struck on an idea that the Wolf College offer nature walks to teach whatever comes up. That evening, adult class participant Chad Maurer shared a vision he had for leading nature hikes. After consulting with him over the next few weeks, Chris & Kim created Northwest Nature Hikes, including becoming administrators of a 3,000 member hiking meetup group in Portland, and a 750 member hiking meetup group in Seattle. Join them for kick-off hikes in January when registrations open at a 50% kick-off discount!
