LOCATION

Wolf Ridge

Wolf Ridge is an environmental Learning Center located in Finland, MN. The center is structured as a small campus (all buildings are about 3-5 minutes from each other) and encourages community engagement and learning.


The best airport to easily fly into is MSP Minneapolis/St. Paul which is about 4 hours south of Wolf Ridge. However, there are flights to DLH Duluth, which would put you about 1.5 hours outside of the venue.


If you're looking for a carpool to the venue, you can do your coordinating on the Facebook Event Page.

FAQs

How will I know where to go when I get there?

We are wrapping up locations of each session and will have a map that is provided to you when you arrive. We'll also have volunteers helping guide us throughout the weekend.

Are people carpooling?

What should I bring?

This is a camp so no real amenities are included (like shampoo/conditioner at a hotel) so bring those items and then anything else you might need depending on what you’d like to participate in. Here are some suggestions:

- Yoga Mat 

- Yoga blanket, throw to be used with meditation

- Comfy Clothes 

- Outdoor Clothes (snow pants, boots, parka, hat, mittens, etc.) 

- Toiletries.

- Snowshoes/Cross Country Skis (if you’d like to do that activity limited amounts available) 

- Any bedding you’d want in addition to a blanket and pillow (i.e. extra blanket if you tend to get cold)
