What we're all about...

On the banks of the Upper Chesapeake Bay lies 2188 acres of land in Elk Neck State Park. As students of the Chesapeake Wilderness Institute, access to this land is available for everyday activities and adventure. Our base camp is situated 150 feet from the Bay with easy access to water and breath taking views. So if you are ready for the challenge of your life, CWI is waiting for you!A small group of educators will lead you on your path of discovery! A Wilderness First Responder will be at base camp and additional medical support will be provided by NorthBay Wellness Center. Retreats and conferences accepted.
