Wolf Ridge

Winter Family Camp

Remember what it was like as a kid, when you woke up to a thick blanket of fresh snow? A whole new world of possibilities opened up. Sledding, snowshoeing, building snow forts, cross country skiing and a slew of other possibilities took your imagination captive.  Now, imagine having a winter camp with your family. Add in more like-minded families learning and playing in the snow together, hot chocolate and s’mores around a campfire, and star filled nights – what a great way to make memories that you’ll talk about for years to come.

Housing and Meals

A place to kick back and relax

Having a place to socialize with family and friends during down time is another important part of the Wolf Ridge experience. You’ll find outdoor and indoor gathering spaces at the M.A.C. Lodge, including the nearby campfire ring, open space for outdoor play, and patio deck. Indoors, there are two wood stoves and comfortable seating for reading and visiting. Perhaps you’ll want to enjoy the evening sunset from the nearby Sawmill Creek Overlook deck, or meet another family for board games in the camp’s dedicated indoor lobby.

Fuel for your imagination

We take great pride in our daily meals.  Whether families are coming in from a day spent outside, or getting ready for the day, everyone will find choices to satisfy their appetites in the Lake Superior Dining Room.

Chris O’Brien, our food service director, believes “we should all be fed well, every meal, every day.” From-scratch vegan, vegetarian and meat dishes are available at each and every meal. Vegan dishes are inherently free of any animal product, including dairy, and are most often gluten free as well. All dietary requests are addressed and often the menu is adjusted to reflect the needs and wants of our clients. Those with common food allergy and sensitivities, including to dairy or peanuts, will find good, healthy food at each meal that addresses their needs. Fresh fruit, veggies, and homemade breads are available all day, in addition to coffee and tea.

Chris and his staff go above and beyond to meet our guests needs and work hard 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 and our meats and other products are sourced as locally as possible. It’s about quality. It’s about passion. It’s about good food done well.
