Sleeping with Wolves

Please note: We are prioritizing the safety and comfort of our visitors and as such, have not yet scheduled any overnight events for 2021. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available.


Sleeping with Wolves, the Wolf Conservation Center's (WCC) popular nocturnal adventure experience, gives guests a chance to camp out overnight with the 40+ wolves that call the WCC home! With all the howls, circling vultures, and nature's nighttime chatter, you'll feel like you're camping under the stars with wild wolves. We might not be Yellowstone, but we're pretty close! Pre-registration is required. Space is limited and dates sell out quickly!

Fee: $299 per 4-person tent (The WCC offers the tent, you can fill it with 2, 3, or 4 people!)

Singles: $150 per person (those registered as a single required to bring their own tent) Please call 914-763-2373 or email to register as a single

Time: 6pm-8:30am the following day (Please note: Friday events begin at 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday events begin at 5 pm)



** Scout rates available for Private Scout Nights. Please email for more info or call 914-763-2373 **

When camping outdoors it’s necessary to take precautions in order to prevent serious infections, especially Lyme disease. Lyme disease is an infection caused by bacteria and is spread by the bite of a deer tick. Not all deer ticks are infected, so not all tick bites will cause the disease. Despite this, the key thing to be aware of is prevention. Download and print prevention flyers offering great tips!
