Wolf Ridge During COVID-19

Updated March 8, 2021
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 is Currently Closed to Public Use

Open for staff and planned deliveries only.

School Programs

We are currently offering non-residential school programming

While the Wolf Ridge ELC facility remains closed until further notice for K-12 residential programming due to COVID-19, the center continues to operate and conduct programs via virtual means as well as providing schools with teaching training for outdoor learning. Please contact us if your school or group would like WRELC staff to provide services at your school. Click to see our Virtual field trips, Teacher Training, and online Adventures in Learning.

We plan to re-open for residential K-12 schools during the 2021-22 school year

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.  We will reach out to previously-registered schools, youth, and adult groups as soon as we know of our plans to reopen.
