Red Wolf is intentionally designed to inspire campers to start along a pathway to leadership. Each year, campers incorporate more advanced skills and longer wilderness excursions to eventually enter our leadership program, starting with our Voyageurs Program at age 15.
Red Wolf takes place on a beautiful backcountry site only a short hike in from our meeting spot.* We welcome all campers, whether a tent is basically your second home or it’s your first outdoor overnight adventure! While we encourage campers to try new things, all challenges are by choice and we support campers to make decisions that they are excited about. Give us a call to chat more about what Red Wolf Camp life is like!

*Red Wolf Overnight Camp takes place backcountry, with no running water, electricity, or permanent structures. Campers sleep in tents and are supported to combine minimal modern equipment with ancient technology.
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 years of Pine Day Camps and, in particular, 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
