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.
Join us for wilderness skills day camps in two locations for ages 7-13:
July 11-15, 2022 in Puyallup: Choose between Wilderness Survival Craft in its 25th year excellent for hands-on learners ages 7-13 who are interested in the projects and lessons we cover, or 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.
Or join us in 2023 when we plan to return to a full slate of camps in the Puyallup/Tacoma area.
Aug 15-19, 2022 at Lake Sammamish: Wildlife Search & Rescue for ages 7-11 with no prerequisite, and Advanced Artisans I for ages 9-13 who have graduated from at least three previous Wolf Camp weeks, received knife safety training at home or another setting, and parents attest that a camper is focused enough to succeed with our method of knife and tool training.
In 2022, we will be offering one overnight camp the week of July 17-23 for Wolf Camp alumni ages 11-17 near Mt Rainier. We hope to return to our full slate of immersive wilderness skills programs in 2023 for ages 9-17 at Lake Sammamish covering a wide range of topics every week.
