Discovery Days

From: $0.00

Join us to explore outdoors! Discovery Days provide day-long field trips in nature during school holidays and in-services.  As with all our programs, the emphasis is on observation, science, and open exploration. Generally with transportation in our 15 passenger van, groups spend each day exploring different places in Juneau’s wonderful back yard.

Current offerings are:

  • November 1 & 2,  for children in grades 2-5.  8:30am drop off, and 4:00pm pickup, both at Twin Lakes (Caouette skating cabin).  Using our van, we’ll explore different locations in Juneau.
  • November 1 & 2, for children in grades 3-5. Site specific Discovery Days. Nov 1 at Glacier Valley Elementary, Nov. 2 at Mendenhall River Elementary.

Registration for the November 1 & 2 Discovery Days will close on Oct. 29th.

Full tuition is $50 per day for the regular Discovery Days, and $45 for the shorter site-specific days.  But pay whatever price is right for your family.  Name your price below. When enrolling multiple children or days, please list the price you’ll pay per child, per day. The internet will do the math.

To enroll, please add each date to your cart, then check out (even if the amount due is $0). Upon check out you’ll receive a link to our online Participant Agreement, which you need to complete at least 10 days before the Discovery Day(s).  Please preview it and more info below in the “Description” tab.

If a day is full (or “Out of Stock”), you can join our waitlist here.
