“Red wolf is a place where you can build a second family and create lifelong friendships.”
Meet Sophie. Sophie has been part of the Pine community for over a decade (since she joined as a Coyote Pup in 2009)! She first went to Red Wolf Overnight Camp as a 10 year old and has been going back ever since. Sophie gave us the inside scoop on the Red Wolf experience and shared some of her favourite memories.
“My favourite thing about Red Wolf is the community you build over the time you are there. Whether you’re there for one week or three weeks, your group becomes your family. They will support you with whatever you need. Living out in the woods for a week requires teamwork and cooperation, and those things make for the best bonding experience.”
“For me, Red Wolf is the best way to spend time in nature.”
Meet Zac. Zac has been part of the Pine community since he was just 4 years old. He first went to Red Wolf Overnight Camp as an 8 year old and was hooked. He shared some insights and memories from his time at Red Wolf.
“I would tell my younger self that Red Wolf will be some of the best weeks of my life. The sense of community is so welcoming and the leaders will teach me so much. I’d say that Pine will go on to have a massive impact on my life and who I am as a person.”
“I learned not to be afraid.”
Meet Lexa, a kid with a sweet tooth, a snuggly demeanour and the skills to light a fire quicker than your dad. Lexa was convinced to go to the Pine Project’s Red Wolf Overnight Camp because she gets to do her favourite things every day for an entire week, and she gets to have a sleepover every night with her friends. After her first year, Lexa left feeling more confident.
“It makes me feel like I can do anything. I feel different. I’m not sure people notice a change, but I think that they probably do.” When asked what she learned, Lexa replied, “I learned not to be afraid.”
My kids have been attending Pine camps for the last 7 years. For my older child especially, the experience has been a foundational one. Much of his sense of self, confidence, and pride comes from his time at Red Wolf. Over the years, he’s stretched his boundaries and achieved things he didn’t know he could. Now, as he continues to learn, and in turn share what he’s accomplished with the new generations of campers, the impact of the program on his feelings of self-worth is even more obvious.— Parent of two Pine campers
