Overnight Camps (Ages 7 to 14)

Red Wolf Overnight Camp

Find yourself in the woods this summer!

Picture this: You’re sitting around a campfire, nestled into a beautiful forest. Your belly is full of wild foods you foraged that morning. It’s the first meal you’ve eaten with your freshly carved spoon and you’re pretty proud. For a moment, your mind drifts to your latest project, a basket woven from the bark of a nearby birch tree. Suddenly laughter fills the space – your friends are sharing memories of games and canoeing earlier that day. When everyone goes quiet, all you hear is the crackling of the fire and loons calling in the distance. You take a deep breath: clean air and the scent of pine trees. You smile. You feel at home in nature, with these people. More calm, more confident, more happy, more healthy. More yourself. 


Nature-inspired transformation

Red Wolf is a transformative outdoor experience for kids. Campers have the rare opportunity to fully immerse themselves in wilderness. Living backcountry with peers and experienced mentors, campers explore the forest, sleep in tents, learn new wilderness skills, play nature games, and more. They leave with a sense of accomplishment, self-confidence and resilience, life-long friendships, and a deep connection to nature.

***New this year, we’re offering two-week Red Wolf programs! These two-week programs are designed for new or returning campers who are craving more time in the backcountry, and offer an opportunity to form stronger bonds with their group, and the land. Activities and challenges will be centered around the campers’ interests.

Adventure & Skill-Building

We fill our time…

  • Swimming
  • Canoeing
  • Hiking
  • Traveling through the wilderness
  • Making bows and arrows and learning how to use them safely
  • Fishing
  • Creating fires by friction (and cooking dinner over them!)
  • Carving
  • Building shelters (and sometimes staying in them overnight!)
  • Tracking wildlife
  • Foraging for wild edibles
  • Camouflaging with natural materials
  • Tackling awareness challenges
  • Playing games
  • Going on overnight excursions

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.

Summer 2024 Details:

Registering by age: To ensure kids of all ages are able to join us, we’ll be registering campers by age ranges (7-8), (9-10), (11-12) & (13-14). However, individual camp groups for one-week sessions will be created closer to the camp’s start date and will allow for some mixing between these age ranges. As always, we will do our best to accommodate friend requests, but we cannot make guarantees.
