We’ve been running safe, exciting outdoor camps every year since 1997, including in the summer of 2020 under strict pandemic protocols, and we plan to continue limited offerings under our essential business designation for child care providers in 2021.
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. Check out our 2021 Schedule:
- 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. Two weeks are available in Puyallup this summer, and just three weeks in Lake Sammamish for ages 8-13.

In addition, 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.
