A Midsummer’s Night 2020

Wolf Haven’s Summer Event – 2020 SOLD OUT

Our premiere summer event, A Midsummer’s Night, offers guests the opportunity to see wolves, hear them howl, learn their stories, eat delicious food, walk through native prairie, camp overnight – and repeat in the morning. Twenty guests have an incredible opportunity to engage in a deeper way with our organization and support our mission.

A Midsummer’s Night reflects the heart of what it means to be a sanctuary. As an accredited sanctuary, our philosophy is that the animals always come first. The resident animals of Wolf Haven are given every opportunity to behave as naturally as possible in a protective environment.  By keeping the group small, our guests can have a deeper, more intimate experience with our sanctuary, wolves, animal care staff and prairie – yet this will seem routine to our resident animals.
