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. 


Welcome to Red Wolf Overnight Camp! If you’re ready to sink into nature, try new things, form life-long friendships, and discover your full potential, Red Wolf is the place to be.

Nature-inspired transformation

Red Wolf is a transformative outdoor experience for youth. Campers have the rare opportunity to fully immerse themselves in wilderness. Living backcountry with peers and experienced mentors, campers explore the forest, 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.

Red Wolf is intentionally designed to inspire campers to embark on a pathway to leadership. Each year, campers incorporate more advanced skills and longer wilderness excursions to eventually enter Pine’s leadership track, starting with our Voyageurs Program at age 15.

Home in the Outdoors

Red Wolf takes place in Ontario’s beautiful backcountry*. Campers sleep in tents and are supported to combine minimal modern equipment with ancient technology. We welcome all campers, whether a tent is basically your second home or it’s your first overnight outdoor adventure!

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.
