“Many of the students in my group had never experienced being away from the city life, yet they enjoyed every moment spent in nature and learning valuable information without feeling like it was school. They had a blast!”
The Web of Life Field (WOLF) School is a residential environmental education organization dedicated to providing outdoor educational experiences for students and teachers. Since 1989, the WOLF School has annually served up to 5,000 youth and adults through a unique variety of environmental education programs at our Northern California campuses. WOLF School is a program of United Camps, Conferences and Retreats (UCCR), a private non-profit camp and conference management organization.
Our mission is "to build respect, appreciation, and stewardship within the Web of Life." From our traditional Residential Outdoor Science Camp program to our Gold Rush Living History program, WOLF School’s lessons, activities, and discoveries are designed to provide opportunities for teachers to enhance classroom learning and for students to gain knowledge, awareness, and respect of their environment, their community, and themselves.
Wolf School has 5 beautiful campuses throughout Northern California. Each campus offers different opportunities for living and learning. From newly built Camp Tuolumne Trails, just outside of Yosemite National Park, to Santa Cruz’s Camp Monte Toyon, where outdoor science school can really focus on redwood ecology and coastal studies, each campus offers something different.
