Outdoor Family Camps & Classes

Wolf Camp Cover

We have a lot of great ways for families to learn together. We ran our first summer day camp in 1997, and we now offer a host of camps for kids, youth, adults and family. Experience our fun, skill-building programs guided by highly trained staff within our hallmark 6-1 average, 8-1 maximum student-teacher ratio that’s so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences.

Summer Camps & Classes for All Ages

The following programs are located at beautiful parks where you can swim, hike and play well beyond our daytime camp activities. After camp hours, we will provide fishing poles and tackle, suggested on-site and near-by hiking maps, resource library and outdoor gear (binoculars, frisbee, balls, board games, etc), as well as limited firewood and craft supplies.
