Choose Your Camp Theme:

Wild Cooking & Herbology: Click for a full description or register below for this theme in its 20th year which 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.

Wilderness Survival Craft: Click for a full description or register below for this theme in its 21st year which is excellent for anyone interested in the projects and lessons we cover, and especially great for hands-on learners.

Camp Leaders

Wolf Camp Office Director Colleen Valadez and Day Camp Director Braden Ploger are on site all week assisting professionally-trained staff instructors at our hallmark 6-1 student-teacher ratio that’s critical for safe, profound and fun outdoor experiences. Read our FAQ’s for more details and check out camp testimonials dating all the way back to 1997!

Our day camps for ages 6-12 are normally $345-$385 for Monday-Friday with complimentary extended care, but in honor of our 20th Anniversary of programs in the Olympia area, tuition this year is just $295. To reserve your spot, make a $100 deposit per camper, and your balance will be due upon arrival.

The only other additional expenses you may incur for camp are that you will need to pack a lunch and snacks every day, and of course all campers need health insurance. Tuition includes choice of Wolf Camp Book or Organic T-Shirt at your first camp with us, and Washington Firesteel or Orienteering Compass at subsequent camps.

Standard Discounts: You will receive cumulative discounts of $5 per additional week you attend this summer, $5 off per additional family member attending this summer, and $5 off for successfully referring other families who register campers this summer.

Scholarships are available, but be sure to apply early for merit scholarships or financial aid because spaces often fill by late spring.
