Welcome to Wolf Camp and the Wolf College

The Wolf College is a conservation teaching college with special expertise in wilderness survival, wild foods, herbal medicine, wildlife tracking, birding and traditional technologies like bow making, hide tanning, basketry and more. Join us to:

• learn for a day

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, sustainable citizen and environmental ed.
