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 Summer Day Camps at Lake Sammamish & Puyallup:

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

2021 Puyallup Dates:

July 12-16, 2021 in Puyallup: Blue Skye Farm Conservation Campers enjoy neighborhood farms around Clark’s Creek Park where they will help bring product to market, care for farm animals, and literally follow the route of town founders through a preserved wilderness of old growth trees and artesian springs.

July 19-23, 2021 in Puyallup: Wildlife Search & Rescue in its 25th year is excellent for exploratory learners, but not recommended for asperger spectrum students, as the itinerary diverges daily based on wildlife “finds” and other learning opportunities.

July 26-30, 2021 in Puyallup: Wild Cooking & Herbology in its 23rd year is excellent for focused learners, as it is like a mini college course on herbalism (although very hands-on) and therefore not recommended for adhd students.

August 2-6, 2021 in Puyallup: Wilderness Survival Craft in its 24th year is excellent for all campers interested in the projects and lessons we cover, and especially great for hands-on learners.
