If your child is planning a future trip to Timber Wolf Lake or is here right now, we want you to have the information you need to rest easy while he or she is away. There are many activities at camp in which your child may be participating. Whether they are challenged on the high ropes course, flying down the zip line or playing in the game room, their safety is our top concern.

What to Bring:

  • Hangout at camp clothes
  • Bathing suit and beach towel
  • At least one pair long pants for some activities
  • Spending money for snack bar and store
  • Water bottle
  • Sweatshirt for cold evenings
  • Close-toed shoes
  • Messy outfit
  • Toiletries
  • Sunscreen and bug spray
  • Rain jacket
  • Medications (if needed)
  • Camera (not a phone)
  • Linens: Due to the limited number of work staff this year, we are unable to provide linens. Senior High and WyldLife campers/leaders must bring their own towels, bed linens, blankets or sleeping bags. ​ We will provide pillows and pillow cases. (Linens will be provided for YoungLives week.)


Young Life and Timber Wolf Lake maintain the highest level of safety and standards in operation of all of our activities at camp. 

All of Timber Wolf's challenge course elements (ropes course, climbing wall and zip line) are inspected annually by a registered Preferred Vendor Member of The Association of Challenge Course Technology. All elements are operated and supervised by our staff who have been fully trained and certified to do so, ensuring your child's comfort and safety.

Timber Wolf's Bike, Waterfront and Timber Carts Programs are also facilitated by trained and experienced staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Timber Wolf Lake.

In the event of an unexpected accident, there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs. Also, if needed, the local hospital is only a short drive away.


We welcome kids of all abilities to our camps. At Timber Wolf Lake, all of our main buildings are accessible to strollers or wheelchairs, and we have a handful of cabins that are designed to be accessible (special housing needs may be requested by your child's trip leader).

Walkways around camp are paved. We will also do our best to help every guest participate in activities. We want every kid to have the best week of their life as they come to camp!
