Summer Camps for Kids, Teens, Adults & Family

Wolf Camp CoverWolf 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.

Kids Day Camps at Lake Sammamish & Puyallup:

Join us for wilderness skills day camps in two locations for ages 7-13:

Two Weeks in Puyallup/Tacoma in 2022

June 27 – July 1, 2022 in Puyallup: Wilderness Survival Craft in its 25th year is excellent for hands-on learners ages 7-13 who are interested in the projects and lessons we cover.

July 11-15, 2022 in Puyallup: Wild Cooking & Herbology is in its 24th year for focused learners ages 7-13, as it is like a mini college course on herbalism (although very hands-on) and therefore not recommended for adhd students.
