Wolf Camp & School of Natural Science

Summer Camps

WolfCampCover2010We’ve been running safe, exciting outdoor camps every year since 1997, including in the summers of 2020-21 under strict pandemic protocols.

Our summer nature and wilderness camps are lead by highly skilled instructors who specialize in outdoor risk management for kids and adults alike. Whatever your outdoor interest, we work hard to ensure that you and your family will love the Wolf Camp experience.

  • KIDS NATURE DAY CAMPS in the Seattle-Tacoma area including Lake Sammamish & Puyallup: Experience exciting educational programs such as Wilderness Survival Craft, Wildlife Search & Rescue, Wild Cooking & Herbology plus advanced themes for alumni. In 2022, two weeks are available in Puyallup, and five weeks in Lake Sammamish for ages 7-13.
  • OVERNIGHT YOUTH CAMPS at Mt. Rainier & Lake Sammamish: Delve into specialized weekly themes including Wilderness Survival, Wild Chefs & Herbal Medics, Animal Tracking of the Ancient Scout, and the Archers, Artists & Artisans camp. We’re only running one overnight camp week in 2022 so are limiting enrollment to ages 11-15 who have attended at least one day or overnight camp with us in previous years.
