Wolf Ridge During COVID-19

Updated December 17, 2020

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, this page offers a summary of how we are adapting our programs and campus.  Our priority remains the safety and well being of participants and staff.

Wolf Ridge Campus Currently Closed to Public Use

  • Staff and planned deliveries only.

2020-21 School Year Programs

The center continues to operate and conduct programs via virtual means as well as providing schools with teaching training for outdoor learning.  As the winter season develops we also plan to offer day use outdoor programming. Please contact us if your school or group would like WRELC staff to provide services at your school.
The Wolf Ridge ELC facility remains closed until further notice for all residential programming due to COVID-19.  The staff and board of directors are continuously reevaluating the reopening decision as changes in society occur, staying in regular contact with the Health Department.  This closure decision is in place at least to March 1, 2021. Please keep Wolf Ridge informed as to your desires and wishes to attend our programs.
We will reach out to our schools, youth, and adult groups as soon as we know of our plans to reopen.
