At the Wolf School of Natural Science you can learn for a day, train in-depth at a week-long expedition, or build a career in outdoor education through one of our seasonal programs which are designed to provide students with a variety of pathways for study. Our primary experiential learning programs include the following:
Full-Time Summer Training Programs
The Earth Skills Teaching Apprenticeship has been our hallmark residential program since 1999 and is available for qualified participants who want to learn to teach wilderness skills in a fast-paced, outdoor setting. Our goal is to ensure that by the end of the summer you have the skillset necessary to work anywhere in the field of outdoor education. Experience full-time onsite training from July 12 – Aug 28 this year as part of our limited pandemic-schedule summer training camps and expeditions, and become eligible for hire at our summer day camps the following year. This is a work-trade experience with all expenses covered for qualified applicants. Apply asap before space fills.
The Blue Skye Farm Internship is a sustainable homesteading program with “permaculture” and entrepreneurial components. The goal is for you to practice cultivating the home environment in a way that benefits nature as well as humans. Certified by the Washington State Farm Internship Program, you’ll help run Blue Skye Farm, home of Wolf Camp & School of Natural Science, growing and selling produce on site. Start locally part-time as early as May 15, arrive onsite for the full-time farm experience by June 20, stay through Aug 28, and remain into the fall season as long as the farm remains productive. This is a work-trade experience with room and board included for qualified applicants, with some income available through farm sales. Apply asap before space fills.
