Summer Camps

Summer Camp

Wolf Camp 2020 will be moving forward as a brand-new Virtual Blend, please see our FAQ below for more detailed information, or call 636-938-5900 for more information. 

So what does a Virtual Blend look like?

To comply with CDC recommendations surrounding the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, all weeks will be capped at 10 campers to ensure the successful implementation of social distancing and thorough disinfecting during onsite activities, as well as provide the utmost engagement with our online experiences. As of right now, we plan on hosting on-site camp activities from 9am-12pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each camper will bring home required materials in a special EWC Camp-in-a-Crate to play along at home using our virtual camp platform on Flipgrid! Tuesdays and Thursdays, when we don’t meet in person, we will meet on Zoom for some interactive fun and guest speakers that are guaranteed to leave your campers entertained and inspired.

Will my camper still see the animals?

Yes, under current regulations, we are excited to host a tour by the animal habitats. We’ll just have to stand a little further apart– great for polishing up your observation skills alongside the experts!

Why half days instead of full days?

To keep from jeopardizing the integral pieces of Wolf Camp, incorporating some half days will aid in ensuring that social distancing among staff and campers is effectively being practiced. We also feel it is the safe choice when asking guests and staff alike to wear face coverings in the summer heat.

What is my role in the virtual portions?

We understand that keeping up with a strenuous schedule of clicking around to various platforms and appointments can require an adult’s help. We recognize that not only is this stressful, but it isn’t always possible at all hours of the day. Our counselors will be utilizing a neat website that many teachers have used for their classes called Flipgrid which is safe, flexible, self-directed, and most importantly super fun! This allows your camper to reply to videos and prompts at their leisure with no strict appointment times or due dates to miss.

Online camp registration is available now

In the light of novel coronavirus, Covid-19, the Endangered Wolf Center Campers will meet on-site from 9am-noon Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Counselors will provide materials and instruction for self-directed virtual camp activities in the afternoons on a secure camp platform. Zoom video meetings will also be utilized in between self-directed activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 10:00am-10:30am and 2:00pm-3:00pm. We appreciate your flexibility and are excited to bring the following themes to your campers this summer.
