Wolf Camp ran its first nature and survival summer camps in 1997. We now offer a host of camps for kids, youth, adults and family. Directors Kim & Chris Chisholm are on site all week with professionally-trained staff instructors at our hallmark 6-1 average student-teacher ratio that’s so critical for safe, profound, and fun outdoor experiences.
Programs are currently proceeding with CDC and state/local health department advisories on appropriate sizing, screening, distancing and hygiene protocols. Please read Virus Mitigation: The Outdoor Advantage and see our blog for daily updates including the upcoming rewrite of Communicable Disease Prevention – Policies & Procedures at Wolf Camp.
