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.
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.
