Youth Summer Camps

Wolf Camp ran its first survival summer camps in 1997, and we now offer a host of camps for kids, youth, adults and family. Kim & Chris Chisholm are on site all week directing professionally-trained staff instructors at our hallmark 6-1 average student-teacher ratio that’s so critical for safe, profound, and fun outdoor experiences.

Scroll down for Kids Day Camps running Monday to Friday 9:30-3:30, weekly Youth Overnight Camps which run Sunday evenings through Friday afternoons all summer, or join your kids at any of our Family Camps. We also offer airport transportation and weekend stay overs if needed.
