Join our fun, skill-building camps! Backed by Wolf Camp’s stellar safety record, and guided by highly trained staff, your child is sure to be inspired. See below for locations and be sure to register by our next discount deadline which is June 5th after choosing your location and one of the following 3 Camp Theme Options for Ages 5-12:
Wildlife Search & Rescue celebrates its 16th year this summer with a cool new name and a field trip to our nearest wildlife rescue sanctuary to see how birds of prey, injured animals, and other wildlife are given a second chance on life. Further, you’ll learn from Search & Rescue volunteers how to navigate in the wilderness, follow trails, and administer first aid!
We’ll also head into the field every day for great wildlife tracking which is how you can learn everything about the maker of tracks. You’ll discover what it’s really like to be an animal, using sensory awareness to know everything that’s going on around you, and especially by learning the language of the birds.
We’ll work together to plaster casts of favorite animals, safely move through the woods, and investigate trails, lays, larders, and other signs of life all around. This camp is full of exciting, interactive, challenging and cooperative games, as campers learn to work as a team to develop skills of leadership, cooperation, patience, and of course, having fun.
WILD CHEFS & HERBOLOGY
Wild Chefs & Herbology celebrates its 14th year this summer. Come with us to explore the fields, forests, prairies, streams, ponds, seashores and backyards of our beautiful region to discover wild foods and medicines growing everywhere.
We wish parents could watch the unfolding of this camp week, because the journey for these young chefs and healers is amazing. From discovering wild foods and medicine, to investigating their properties, to fully utilizing their gifts, and finally being able to tell their true stories, campers develop more real skill than you might imagine.
Campers will learn to identify and use the top 10 most important plants of their area in addition to their look-alikes. They will also create a personal journal of recipes, drawings and important notes, practice their awareness skills while learning to move through nature unnoticed, spin natural rope and create natural health and body care products to bring home, among other accomplishments. And, we can’t forget herbal spa day – a camper favorite.
FUTURE SURVIVORS FUN
Future Survivors Fun celebrates its 15th year this summer. Re-create a traditional way of life, honoring the gifts of wood, stone, fire and water. We’ll follow the critical order of survival, practicing emergency response scenarios, building warm shelter, purifying drinking water, making safe fire, and using the most important plants for survival.
Campers will also witness bow drill fire by friction and then work with a team to practice it themselves. They will learn aidless navigation for lostproofing, and craft tools of stone, including a course knife. They will make “rabbit sticks” and other honorable hunting implements, learning that all life – plant, animal and mineral – is sacred to be respected.
