Wolf Ridge is dedicated not only to teaching school children, we are also committed to teaching teachers.

Through an intense experiential graduate program, we train “student naturalists” to be effective environmental educators. For 10 months, these student naturalists live and learn environmental education on our 2,000-acre campus in northern Minnesota. It’s tough, but participants emerge from the experience with the skills needed to excel as a naturalist and to be effective as an educator. We’ve trained over 1,000+ naturalists during our 50-year history as an organization. Our Camp Website Link:

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We offer a variety of camp scholarships & discounts Our Camp Website Link:

Bring your entire family – and a few friends – to Wolf Ridge.

Offered a few weeks each year, our family camps provide age-appropriate activities for everyone and every age in your group, from canoeing and rock climbing to nature crafts and naturalist-led hikes.

You decide how to spend your time. We’ll provide warm meals, comfortable lodging, beautiful views, and nightly campfires.

Looking for something off the beaten path? Our naturalists are available throughout the summer to serve as outfitters for custom day trips or multi-day exploring the Boundary Water by canoe and Apostle Islands by kayak.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Founded in 1971, Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center was
the first environmental learning center in the nation to be accredited as a K-12 school. The center, which attracts 13,000 participants from 165 communities annually, is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in environmental education.

Wolf Ridge is the “living laboratory” in which students explore, discover, grow and learn - as nature intended.
