activities

We believe in nurturing the curiosity, growth and independent spirit of each camper, every year that they attend. Here is what each age group will be doing at Day Camp this year…

 

Hummingbirds (entering kindergarten and 1st grade)

Grab your backpack, water bottle and hiking boots and get ready to explore Wolf Ridge! This camp is sure to be a wild time as we use all our senses to explore the tricks plants and animals use to survive. Excellent eyesight, clever camouflage, sticky seeds, tongues that smell and stinky sprays are some of the adaptations we will explore. Each day will be a new adventure as we use our senses to uncover the hidden stories of the wild.

Rangers (entering 2nd and 3rd grade)

Walk like a fox, hear like a deer and put on your owl eyes!  Decipher the secrets of the animals as they teach you to move invisibly through the forest. Track animal signs, discover the mysteries of animal language and understand how they survive!  Spend the week on a quest with your wild senses to help unlock the secrets of the animal kingdom!

Sprouts (entering 2nd and 3rd)

Connect to the wonder and beauty of nature through food, nutrition and farming. Everyday will be a new adventure as campers discover how to grow healthy organic food by investigating the soil, the seeds we plant and the insects that call the farm home.

Pioneers (entering 4th and 5th grade)

How would you survive if you were lost in the woods? We will work together to meet this challenge as we learn compass skills, build shelters, identify edible plants and practice our canoeing skills so that you too can become a wilderness survivor!

drop off time and location

meals and snacks

No matter what the meal is, campers will satisfy their appetites in the Fireplace Dining Room. Food Service Director Chris O’Brien and his staff go above and beyond to produce a choice driven, healthy, hearty meal while creating a sense of community here at Wolf Ridge. Most of our produce is from the Wolf Ridge Organic Farm while meats and other products are sourced as locally as possible.  From-scratch vegan, vegetarian and meat options are offered at each and every meal.

Our kitchen staff regularly works with participants to meet allergy and dietary concerns. Daily vegan dishes are inherently free of any animal product, including dairy, and are most often gluten free as well. Individuals with common food allergy and sensitivities, including to dairy or peanuts, will find good, healthy food at each meal that addresses their needs. Our Dining Hall is nut free. Please note dietary requests, concerns, and preferences when completing camp registration materials.

Healthy snack options are available for campers every afternoon.

“It’s about quality. It’s about passion. It’s about good food done well.” – Chris O’Brien
