Taken a step back in time as you paddle a voyageur canoe, singing voyageur songs at the top of your lungs? Jumped off the zip-line of a high ropes course as your friends and family cheer you on? Gazed in awe at a wolf track between your snowshoes? These are some of the things the students may experience while attending classes at Wolf Ridge.
