 A Day at WOLF!

Camp Questions and Answers

What Are the Dorms Like?

Girls and boys stay in separate cabins with their classmates and a chaperone chosen by their teachers. Each dormitory or cabin has room for 4-14 students and chaperones. There are bunkbeds in each cabin and centrally located modern bathrooms and showers. Your classroom teacher will have more information about who will be in which cabins.

What Will I Eat at WOLF School?

Our professional kitchen staff makes healthy, tasty meals for the kids and adults who attend the WOLF School.  Generally we have pasta with veggie or meat sauce, bread and salad for dinner the first night, followed by dessert. For breakfasts, we have food like pancakes, cereal, fruit, yogurt, eggs and potatoes, French toast.  For lunch, each student makes their own sandwich to take out on the trail. Sandwich options include turkey, ham, cheese, peanut butter and jelly, vegetables, tofu.  For lunch, kids also get a piece of fruit, baby carrots, cookie and trail mix.  For the other dinners we have food like make your own burritos, pizza and salad. You are always welcome to have seconds at meals.

If you are vegetarian, have a food allergy, medical condition or other limitation (religious, etc.) affecting what you eat, let your teacher know on your health form so we can make sure to have plenty of good food ready for you. 

What Should I Bring?

Your teacher will give you a list of things to bring to the WOLF School. Don’t forget to bring your lunch for the first day, a reusable water bottle (a reused 16 oz. plastic water or soda bottle will be fine), a rainjacket, rain poncho or large trash bag (to make a rain jacket), a hat, sunblock and a daypack to carry all this out on the trail.  Do not bring extra food or candy (it attracts ants), money (nothing to buy), expensive equipment or brand new shoes that will hurt your feet when you walk.  Your regular tennis shoes will work for hiking and walking.  Click the link below to get a detailed packing list!
