Community is an important focus of the the Voyageur program. Campers will spend the week focusing on the cultural history of northern Minnesota while developing team building and leadership skills through hands-on games and activities. They practice these newly developed skills as they work together to paddle the voyageur canoe, learn how to use a GPS, explore the critters in Sawmill Creek and go on an overnight camping trip to Raven Lake. No matter what the activity is, Voyageurs are sure to see their confidence grow, achieve their goals and learn how to apply their knowledge to their community.
Set imaginations and adventurous spirits free this summer. As campers overcome new challenges and conquer the Ultimate Survival skills they need to explore the environment safely. They gain a real sense of achievement and return home bursting with confidence and enthusiasm.
Campers will be housed in our East Dorm. Each room features its own bathroom and shower, bunks beds, and camper gear cubbies. Camp staff also live in the dorm, with one counselor per room. There are cozy gathering spaces for game playing during down time, plus a grass field just out the door. Kids and staff gather at the near-by campfire ring before meals to sing songs, share stories of their adventures, and learn what the next part of the day will bring. The East Dorm is perfect place to grow the deep, closely knit community that makes camp so special.
While on trail, campers sleep in single-sex tents. Wolf Ridge uses 2, 4, and 6 person backcountry tents.
Whether they’re coming in from a long day outside or getting ready for the day, campers satisfy their appetites in the Fireplace Dining Room. Here, they’ll enjoy the range of delicious menu options including local, freshly harvested foods from the Wolf Ridge organic farm.
On trail, campers eat delicious, high-energy foods to fuel their wilderness exploration. Backcountry meals include burritos, alpine pasta, hearty soups, fry bread, pancakes, and oatmeal, with many other possibilities. Special dietary considerations can usually be accommodated.
After a week full of friendship, fun, and teamwork, on Friday night Wolf Ridge will hold a community celebration dinner and campfire for all campers. Campers will gather in the Fireplace Dining Room to enjoy a family-style meal served by the camp directors while celebrating the accomplishments and achievements of their community members.

Requests for special dietary concerns must be made a minimum of two weeks in advance of arrival for planning purposes. Click on “Resources” (top menu, to the right) for more information.
