Tracking Wolves - Wolf Camp

Wednesday, March 28, 2012 10:46:19 PM

This summer, Wolf Camp, a nature-oriented Washington State summer camp founded in 1997, will track a pack of wolves that was recently discovered just 80 miles from downtown Seattle in the North Cascade Mountains. During the week of July 8-13, 2012, tracking instructors from Cybertracker, Int'l will join Wolf Camp staff and campers to help determine the boundaries of what has been dubbed the Teanaway Pack of wolves.

Although myths, mystery and hot-button politics surround the issue of wolves in North America, there is statistically no danger to humans from encountering healthy wolves in the wild. There have been injuries and deaths caused by captive wolves, wolves that have been fed and therefore accustomed/unafraid of humans, and in the recorded history of North America, just one unexplained death of a solo trail runner in Alaska in 2010.

On the other hand, the importance of wolves returning to the wild throughout their continent-wide range is well documented, and so Wolf Camp is advocating for balanced management as wolves repopulate Washington State. The hope is that wolves will help displace some of the cougars, bears, coyotes and other predators in nature, while also keeping prey from overpopulating and causing destruction of flora, as happened in Yellowstone National Park before wolves were reintroduced to fix the problem.

Wildlife tracking is just one of the many skills that Wolf Camp introduces to its campers and students throughout the year. Wilderness survival, herbal medicine, sustainable homesteading, fishing and specialty camp weeks like "Secrets of the Ancient Scout" fill the summer with intense learning, fun and adventure for all ages. The deadline for registering is June 5th, and pick-up is available at SeaTac International Airport.
