Every WOLF program promotes school spirit, unity and friendship, and encourages students to fulfill leadership roles.  The results of these programs have been extraordinary.  The following is a list of activities that promote these goals.

All Group Challenges

When groups are meeting with success on an individual level, they are brought together to attempt more difficult all group challenges such as the all group drum stalk, academic decathlons, and more.


In trail groups, students will participate in a number of exercises designed to teach cooperation and leadership.  Such games include the Helium Stick, Blind Ninja, and Jewels. Participants practice communication skills, problem solving, and enjoy the opportunity to play together outside the classroom.



Each program opens and closes with a discussion about the power of a group. WOLF instructors introduce games throughout the week that require the group to work together to achieve simple goals with an emphasis on the spirit of community.

Critical Thinking

The habits of mind that characterize a person strongly disposed toward critical thinking include a desire to follow reason and evidence wherever they may lead, a systematic approach to problem solving, inquisitiveness, even-handedness, and confidence in reasoning.
