We are thrilled and honored to receive recognition from Anchorage Daily News as Best Summer Camp in Alaska.
Most importantly though, this award is a reminder of why we do the work that we do, and also who we do it for. It is an inspiration to keep going and keep improving.
As we look forward to 2020, we plan to continue to serve, to make our kids and community proud! Thank you for showing your appreciation for the dedication we have to offering quality program to children and youth. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
The Camp Fire Alaska main office operates on the ancestral land of the Dena’ina people. Camp Fire Alaska runs programing on the lands of the Athabascan, Yup’ik, Chup’ik, Sougpiaq, and Inupiaq peoples. We value and thank them for their current and historic commitment to and protection of this land. We pledge to assist, in partnership, in the environmental stewardship of these lands. We strive to learn more about the history of the Native peoples of Alaska and the historic trauma they have suffered. We commit to being an active ally through activities, actions, and organizational decisions and practices. We understand that this is a dynamic process through which our Land Acknowledgement practices, and statement will evolve as we receive feedback from tribal partners and acquire a deeper understanding of and from the Native peoples of Alaska.
