Red Wolf Wilderness Camp


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

Cook over the open fire, harvest wild plants and add them to meals, make fire from rubbing sticks together, and sneak up on your friends covered in amazing natural forest camouflage. Red Wolf Wilderness Camp is all about learning to live in the wild. We set out on a week-long adventure in the wilds of Haliburton County to make our camp, and fulfill many of our needs from nothing more than the natural world around us.

Groups focus on various themes throughout the week, using cool challenges and the amazing places we find to our advantage. We use primitive tools, making friction fires and shelters to keep us warm and dry in any weather, and have tons of fun playing games and learning all about the world around us. Through many of these awesome skills, we learn about the land and how we can work with it to survive and thrive! There’s also plenty of time to hang out around the fire, relax, and just enjoy being outside.

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) later.
