2013 Best from North Puget Sound – Signed my kiddos up for Wolf Camp again this year- I’m excited for them! They get to spend a week outside in tents, and learn so much. Thank you Chris Chisholm and Kim McKillip Chisholm for running this camp each year! It’s an awesome experience for my kids that I know will stay with them for their lifetimes. – Nikki Wheeler, Snohomish WA
2013 Best from Central Puget Sound – Chris and Kim, thank you for an “amazing” (as my kids keep saying) week this week. Kaely and Caeden had a wonderful time and we will figure out ways to make your camps in future summers.  We love the topics and skills as you can’t get better than outdoors, nature and animals and I’m sure the kids will tell us more and apply what they’ve learned on our camping and backpacking trips this summer. Smiles, it was nice to meet you all and make sure to take a break too !! Also Chris thanks for making the van trips for my kids :) – DeeDee, Ryan, Kaely and Caeden Miller, Federal Way WA
2013 Best from South Puget Sound – Highly recommended for all ages of explorers! Another resource we are lucky to have here in the beautiful NW! – Jennifer LeMay, Sumner WA
2013 Best from Portland-Vancouver –  Hey guys. Thanks so much for this camp.  Wyatt learned so much from you, Chris. Enough that he is now the proud owner of a pocket knife (though we went over all the precautions he might need for this particular knife several more times before he got it!) Anyway, he loved your camp, and seems to have really retained a lot of what he learned.  You guys are awesome! – Amy Poe, Portland, OR

2012 Best from North Puget Sound – We can’t say enough good things about this camp – it’s not just about the learning which there is plenty of that, but it’s much more. We have repeatedly sent our daughter who is now 13, and can’t wait until our 5 year old is 6 so she can begin as well. Chris and Kim, the camp directors, and the camp instructors are all top notch. We sent our daughter here the first year when she was going through a difficult time and she came back inspired and healthy and couldn’t stop talking about her experience and everyone she met at Wolf Camp.  We are very thankful she has this camp to look forward to every Summer! – Lori F.
2012 Best from Central Puget Sound – My son Jace attended the McCollum Park Camp last year and LOVED it. – Mandy P., Bothell WA
2012 Best from South Puget Sound – Our 10-year-old twin girls had a great time at Wolf Camp with Chris and Kim. They came home really excited and couldn’t wait to go back. We like to spend a lot of time hiking and camping, and the girls learned how to spot good berries from poisonous ones, which plants are safe and which ones can be eaten. They were fascinated by it all. Chris and Kim are very friendly people and are great with the kids. – Bob Wadsworth, Puyallup/Renton

2011 Best from North Puget Sound – My son had a great week at Wolf Camp. He is a bright kid but sometimes has trouble socially in traditional camps (sports oriented, lower common denominator activities). Not so at Wolf Camp. He felt welcome, safe, and appreciated. He did the Survivor Day Camp and came back each day with enthusiasm, stories, frienships and confidence. Kim and Chris do a great job of creating a communal, warm atmosphere that extends beyond Camp walls. One day while the campers were swimming at the park’s pool a non-camper became ill and they called 911. This was a great learning experience for the kids to see they are members of a greater community and to take responsibility for that. They debriefed on the incident in the van so the kids understood why they intervened and how to do so safely. My son is eager to go next year, already! – Jenny K.
2011 Best from Central Puget Sound – Of the 9 camps Maxwell attended last year, he insists to participate the Wolf Camp again this year as his hop choice.  He particularly wants to learn more about the outdoor survival skills more this year. – Jeffrey Chang, Seattle WA
2011 Best from South Puget Sound – Chris – I just wanted to let you know how thrilled the kids were with their wolf camp experience. Also, thanks so much for the feedback…. Hope to see you at some of the homeschool classes.” – Julia Taylor, Fox Island

2010 Best from North Puget Sound – Our son has had a fantastic week. He’s already talking about what camp he wants to do next year (herbal) and doing overnight camp too when he gets older. I’m so pleased with all of it and think you two are fantastic at what you do. You will definitely have campers from our family for years to come. – Jenny K.
2010 Best from Central Puget Sound - Thank you for the great week — Lucy couldn’t stop talking about camp and all she was learning. We got a mini-lecture every day after we picked her up. (Presentations for parents were) really nice, by the way! – Kim M., Mill Creek Parent of Day Camper, 2010-12
2010 Best from South Puget Sound – My son Joe wore his Wolf Camp shirt today. And that made me think about what a wonderful time he had at Wolf Camp way back in June! It was a terrific way to start our summer…. Again, thank you for providing a welcoming, warm environment for Joe at Wolf Camp this past June. Take care, Margi Hansen.
