Wilderness Skills Sampler & Advanced FLOW Camps
ALL WEEKS WAITLISTED in 2021 but check out our unique Virtual Outdoor Camps!
Choose from our day camps located at the Hans Jensen Group Camp, our privately-rented, 80 acre wilderness park across from the East Lake Sammamish boat launch in Issaquah. Day Camps run Mon-Fri 9:30-3:30 with complimentary extended care available as early as 8:30 a.m. and no later than 4:30 p.m.
Camp is designed for ages 6-12 with campers grouped with others closest to their age within our 6-1 student-teacher ratio so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences this year.
Camp includes optional wading/swimming and games/archery during lunchtime, depending on park rules, camper safety tests, weather and other conditions.
Camp Week of June 27 – July 1, 2020
Wilderness Skills Sampler for ages 6-12 is in its 9th year at Lake Sammamish and has no prerequisite. The sampler camp introduces a variety of wilderness skills that Wolf Camp offers. We touch base in this week in Wilderness Survival, Herbal Medicine, Wild Foods, Animal Tracking and additional skills.
Advanced FLOW Camp provides campers ages 8-13 returning from previous years with us a great opportunity for freedom outside, like in the olden days. We’ll have a variety of stations to choose from like the meditation tree, natural music composition, silent nature walks, yoga/dance, theater, nature crafts, and a selection of our special survival, wildlife and herbal skills. Each day, participants will dive deeper into the free-flowing activity stations instructors have set up, with choice of our survival, wildlife and herbal skills, plus improvisational music composition, theater, and other creative outlets to let go of the routine built up in school.
Camp Directors Kim & Chris Chisholm are on site all week directing professionally-trained staff instructors at our 6-1 average student-teacher ratio so critical for safe and profound outdoor experiences this year. Read our FAQ’s for more details and check out camp testimonials dating all the way back to 1997!
Instruction runs Mon-Fri 9:30-3:30 with complimentary extended care as early as 8:30 a.m. and pick-up no later than 4:30 p.m. We are located at the Lake Sammamish Hans Jensen Group Camp, 4460 East Lake Sammamish Pkwy SE, Issaquah WA 98029. The reserved Hans Jensen Group Camp with hidden entrance across the street from the boat launch, not the main state park entrance, is a privately-rented, eighty-acre property managed by the state park but not open to the public. It is located ACROSS FROM, NOT AT the East Lake Sammamish Boat Launch. Look for a gravel driveway on the opposite (east) side of East Lake Sammamish Parkway.
Summer Day Camp weeks at Lake Sammamish are $475. Cumulative discounts include $50 off one week for all camp alumni and those who registered and had to cancel last year, plus $5 off for all campers per additional week this summer, and $5 off per additional family member attending this summer.
To reserve your spot for weeks still available, make a $100 deposit per camper/week and your balance will be due upon arrival. The only 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.
Scholarships are available if you apply for financial aid before spaces fill, usually by late spring.

Refund Policy: Deposits ($100 for day programs, $200 for overnight programs) are not refundable unless we don’t accept your application. If you cancel for any reason, you may receive a full credit good through the following calendar year on appropriate and available programs listed on our schedule, although an additional deposit is needed to secure your spot in the future program. If a program you sign up for is canceled and not rescheduled at a time you can attend, you may receive a full refund except in cases of natural (weather, geologic, wildfire, etc) disasters, grid failures, epidemics, government shutdowns, conflicts or curfews, or other unforeseen emergencies making it unsafe for staff and/or attendees to reach or use program locations, in which case all payments made will be held by us without expiration date for your future use in appropriate/available programs of your choice. Reasons include the expenditure of funds (property rentals, advertising, materials, admin staff time, etc.) long before programs take place, i.e. deposits make it feasible for Wolf Camp to schedule programs in the first place, but our mutually understood agreement is that Wolf Camp will run the program at the safest available time in the future. Finally, no refund, nor credit, is given if a participant is asked to leave a program for inappropriateness as determined by our kids, youth and adult agreements for participation.
