Alaska’s longest running, co-ed overnight camp is nestled along the shores of Kenai Lake in Cooper Landing, a two-hour bus ride from Anchorage. Just a stone’s throw from main camp and your own cabin is a half-mile long beach with access to hiking trails, boating activities, large fields for outdoor games, and an art building.
This 160-acre campus within the Chugach National Forest is “wild Alaska” with everyday opportunities to be off the grid, experience wildlife, and take in the epic beauty right outside your cabin door.

We are so excited to be heading back to camp this summer! While much of camp will feel the same, there will be some new experiences!
Camp K's waterfront activities include a variety of things like canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. The beach is also a great place for skipping rocks or just relaxing with friends while enjoying the spectacular views. Activities are lead and supervised by a Certified Lifeguard and Waterfront Specialist.
Target sports are not only a lot of fun, but they also help develop hand-eye coordination, concentration, and focus. Camp K offers Archery, Riflery, Blow Darts, Atlatl, and even Wrist Rockets! What's atlatl--spear-like projectiles that use a tool to fly further than the arm alone could throw. trust us, you're going to want to try it out!
Camp K’s large activity field is perfect for games and sporting activities. Campers love playing GaGa and 9 Square in the Air, as well as all-camp games such as Capture the Flag, Dragon's Nest or Pony Express.
Painting, beading, wood burning, fiber arts, leather bracelets, woven friendship bracelets, tie-dye…and so much more. Camp K has its own crafts pavilion named “Lenny”.
From climbing mountains to exploring trails close to camp, opportunities abound for getting outside and exploring. Popular hikes to Russian River Falls allow us to watch salmon or meander down to Rainbow Lake.
Older campers spend a night or two out of camp for a more wilderness experience. They prepare, pack and carry their gear for a camp out that can include tent camping, cooking over the fire, and filtering water. There's no better location on earth to learn how to camp out.
The lake is COLD…the sauna is hot! Need we say more?
Learn how to build a fire, make a shelter, and the principles of Leave No Trace. Technology trends mean that many kids never learn how to build and cook over a fire, set up a tent, and camp responsibly. In fact, some kids have never gone camping. With current research demonstrating the need for kids to unplug and connect with nature, you can trust our professionally trained staff to teach your kids these skills and more.
What would summer camp be without a campfire? Camp sessions begin and end with evenings around the fire sharing skits, songs and fun times together in order to create community and a sense of belonging. Our staff teach your kids that camp is a safe place to be the truest version of yourself. Campers watch counselors model what it means to be comfortable with who you are.
