For the weeks of July 22 and July 29, we’re offering a new “after care” program for Outdoor Explorers summer camp.  This provides care for kids from the time camp ends (3:30) to the time parents get off work (by 5:30). 

We’ll continue to explore outdoors, but will focus on options closer to home for this short time.  For example, we may garden, play games at Twin Lakes, or work on crafts.  This is open only to families enrolled in those weeks of regular camp, and the same general format, policies, and expectations of regular camp apply.  

Please review the details in the “Description” tab below.  Some highlights:

  • This is open to any child currently enrolled in these two weeks of camp: July 22nd-26th and July 29th-August 2nd.
  • Regular tuition is $50/week, but if that isn’t appropriate for your family, you can name your own price.

Common Birds of Southeast Alaska

Our laminated tri-fold pocket guide on Flowers gives you information to identify common Southeast Alaskan flowers, and can handle a rainstorm…like July.

Common Tracks Guide

Tracking has been a core activity in Discovery programs for years.  This pocket guide provides tracking tips for common mammals and birds of Southeast, helping students, teachers, and budding naturalists read the signs of non-human inhabitants in the landscape.
