WOLF School Announces 2016 California Summer Camps

Web of Life Field (WOLF) School is excited to invite kids and families to the central California coast redwoods for three incredible summer camp experiences.

This 2016 summer camp season, WOLF School will be offering Summer Nature Day Camp at Camp Monte Toyon in Aptos, CA, as well as Summer Resident Camp and DIY Family Camp at Little Basin, part of Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Boulder Creek, CA. Registration is currently open for all summer camps!

For those that want the camp experience without the overnights, Summer Nature Day Camp is the perfect choice. Held June 6-10, 2016, WOLF School Summer Nature Day Camp is open to K-6th graders. Set in the redwoods at Camp Monte Toyon in Aptos—located off of Highway 1 near Santa Cruz—Summer Nature Day Camp features a science and nature theme all week and an outdoor adventure every day! Kids are invited to come one day or every day of the week and join WOLF School naturalists and friends in camp arts and crafts, cooperative games, fun leadership activities, and more. This year also features new offerings, including survival day and a climbing wall.

Looking for that true summer camp experience? Look no further than WOLF School’s Summer Resident Camp! A 5 day/4 night overnight camp held June 20-24, 2016, WOLF School’s Summer Resident Camp is open to 5th-8th graders. Kids will enjoy a week of fun, friends and outdoor exploration in the stunning redwood forest at Little Basin Cabins and Campground, part of Big Basin Redwoods State Park and located in the Santa Cruz Mountains between Santa Cruz and San Jose. From identifying native plants and their uses, to learning how to make fire and helping prepare their own meals, children will make a deeper connection with their public lands, and learn about their role within the web of life. Highlights of the week include geocaching, tie-dye, solar cooking, forestry, hiking, sleeping under the stars, and more!

Summer camp isn’t just for the kids…WOLF School wants everyone to experience the thrill and impact of the outdoors! Their exciting DIY Family Camp invites all families to Little Basin for a weekend of outdoor exploration and family relaxation while camping in the majestic redwood forest. With two open weekends left to choose from—June 16-19 and July 14-17, 2016—there’s no reason you have to miss out. This is a great opportunity to inspire a DIY, or do-it-yourself, spirit within your family, empowering your kids with a can-do attitude in a fun, outdoor environment. Throughout the weekend (Thursday-Sunday), families can bond during family softball games, guided nature hikes, shared meals, and musical campfires. Adults can also take advantage of much deserved relaxation times, as WOLF School’s professionally trained naturalists guide kids on outdoor adventures and activities.
