Summer Overnight Youth Camps

Wolf Camp Cover

Join our fun, skill-building programs guided by highly-skilled instructors who are specially trained to teach pre-teens, teens and young adult groups during overnight camps. The Wolf School of Natural Science ran its first overnight summer camps in the spring and summer of 1998, and we now offer a host of camps for kids, adults and family. Our hallmark 6-1 average student-teacher ratio (4-1 separate groups during the pandemic era) also ensures profound outdoor experiences that will become some of the best memories in life.

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.
