Adventure Information

Everyone loves Joshua Tree! These long running programs feature all the best of WOLF camping adventures with great food, elaborate base camp, celebration campfires and a perfect chance to explore the geologic wonders of the desert surrounding. WOLF uses vans and shuttles to move large groups in rotations though Sheep Pass, Barker Dam, night safaris, top rope climbing and rappelling, bouldering sites and other areas of scenic interest. Students traverse the underground “Chasm of Doom” hike to “Ryan’s Peak” and enjoy a host of science, team building, and primitive living skills activities such as friction fires, medicine bags & shell jewelry, astronomy, plant i.d. & soil testing, map & compass, and grade appropriate WOLF signature group rotations. The Joshua Tree trips are generally suitable for grades 5 - 12 and groups up to and over 100 persons. The incredible food and camping experience in the cooperative and beautiful Joshua Tree climate makes this trip among the all time favorites.


Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park is a desert wonderland.  We have an incredible program designed to provide a first rate outdoor experience here, which features a combination of desert ecology, plant and wildlife studies, teambuilding, rock climbing, bouldering, caving and camping fun.

With its mild fall-winter climate and diverse life and earth forms, Joshua Tree is a backpacker’s dream. Hikes range from quick, easy nature walks with interpretive signs to strenuous climbs over boulders and up to barren peaks. Some highlights: the 49 Palms and Lost Palms oases, miniature tropical paradises that pop out of the sand; and the Wonderland of Rocks, where elephant-sized boulders appear to have been dropped there by giants.

The canyons and hills are typically dominated by common shrubs such as desert senna, bladder pod, jojoba, desert mallow, paper bag bush, encelia, vigueria, whiteratany, and four o’clock. Other shrubs in these areas include jimsonweed and coyote melon. After adequate rainfall the deserts can be transformed by colorful wildflower displays.
