Blue Skye Farm & School of Natural Science

Kim & Chris Chisholm are in the process of turning Wolf Camp and the Conservation College over to a non-profit board of directors.

Going forward, Chris and Kim are making plans to remain close to their farm and offer small summer day camps in and weekend workshops in Puyallup.

Currently, the Blue Skye Farm Internship is the primary farm program Chris and Kim started in a decade ago. It has been certified by the Washington State Farm Internship Program since 2016.
