Bring your organization to Wolf Ridge for a conference that combines business in a beautiful setting with access to outdoor recreation.
Located on 2,000 forested acres overlooking Lake Superior plus property on the lakeshore itself, our breathtaking vistas, secluded trails, and pristine lakes provide an idyllic setting for co-workers to gather, share ideas, and grow stronger as a team. Participants stay in the Wolf Ridge dormitories, take meals in the dining hall, and attend meetings in a variety of campus settings, from the 300 seat auditorium to many breakout rooms. We can meet the single-day or overnight needs of conferences and meetings for up to 300 people.
We take great pride in creating delicious daily meals. Whether coming in from a day spent outside or fueling up for the next adventure, everyone will find choices to satisfy their appetites in the Lake Superior 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 dishes are available at each and every meal. Fresh fruit, veggies, and homemade breads are available all day, in addition to coffee and tea.
“It’s about quality. It’s about passion. It’s about good food done well.” – Chris O’Brien
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.
The new Margaret A. Cargill (MAC) Lodge features stunning views of the campus’s hills, valleys and cliff-lined lakes. In the common spaces you’ll find comfortable couches and chairs to relax in, tables for socializing or game-playing, and a small kitchenette with sink, microwave and refrigerator. Massive stone fireplaces with wood-burning pellet stoves grace two of the five shared areas – a perfect place to settle in and read a book during some quiet time. The outdoor deck overlooking the bird feeders behind the lodge is another favorite for enjoying some time in the sun between activities.
MAC Lodge sleeping accommodations are divided into suites. Each suite includes two bedrooms, a shared space with two sinks, and separate toilet and shower rooms. Those who want more privacy can close the sliding door to their individual bedroom. Each bedroom contains two bunkbeds and can sleep one to four people. For adult programs, a maximum of 6 people share a suite. If you choose to pay for a single bedroom, you will have a private sleeping space, and will share a bathroom and shower with 1-3 suite-mates. Groups of four or may may request to share a suite.
MAC Lodge is one of only about 45 in the world built to meet Living Building Challenge standards. Residents will experience what it’s like to live comfortably at net zero for both water end energy.

Free time might be spent on hiking/ski trails, climbing on indoor rock walls, crossing the high ropes course or attending programs on birds of prey or the history of the North Shore. In the evening Wolf Ridge staff can provide interesting and entertaining interpretive programs on topics such as the history of the North Shore or our live raptor show.
LIST OF ACTIVITIES WITH PHOTOS?
As members of a team, participants will learn about the life skills of trust, communication, cooperation and logical thinking while playing games, solving problems and working through challenges. The team will be collectively analyzing how effective they were before, during and after the games. This processing of experiences will focus the group on discussing how to use these skills to solve problems and challenges they encounter at work.
Near-by, you’ll find access to Lake Superior, the Superior Hiking Trail, many state parks, Scientific and Natural Areas, historical sites, golf courses, and local natural resource industries for field trips.
