Way of the Wolf

Ages: 11 - 13

Dates: August 6 - 10 

Tuition: $
Overnights: 4

Challenge Level:  

Have you ever heard the howl of a wolf or seen a wolf up close? Join the Telluride Academy as we travel to Mission Wolf, a wolf rehab sanctuary located in the San Luis Valley whose mission is to educate people about these extraordinary animals.  We'll meet the wolves up close and personal, tour the wolves’ home and participate in a service project to gain more insight into the world of these truly magical creatures.  Nights will find us falling asleep under the stars, listening to our new friends howl at the moon!  After this once-in-a-lifetime experience we’ll head to the Great Sand Dunes to surf the massive sand landscape before heading back to Telluride with a better appreciation of these wild animals.

*This program offers students an optional opportunity to assist with the preperation of processed animal parts in order to feed the wolves. Alternative options for service projects will be made available for anyone who does not wish to participate.
