Register Now: Our Most Powerful Experience for Youth…

Red Wolf Wilderness Camp (Ages 7 – 9, 10 – 14)


As our flagship program, Red Wolf Wilderness Overnight Camp is our most powerful experience for youth. Campers have the rare opportunity to fully immerse themselves in wilderness and learn to live off the land. They spend their days foraging, tracking wildlife, making fires, building shelters, carving, canoeing, hiking, swimming and more! Through these unique experiences, paired with guidance and mentorship from knowledgeable staff, campers build strong social bonds and develop a greater sense of personal resilience, confidence and self-reliance.
Living wild and free for an entire week, campers leave with a deep connection to nature that will last their entire lives.

All challenges are by choice, and campers are supported to make decisions they are excited about. We have bug free tents set up for sleeping, and more modern conveniences at hand when needed. All food is provided – allergies and other food sensitivities are taken into account when planning menus.

Campers are dropped off on Sunday with the gear they’ll need for the week (a packing list is provided in our welcome package) and parents pick them up on Saturday a week (or two, or three) later.

  • camouflaging with natural materials
