Camp Fire Alaska | Light the Fire Within

Camp Si-La-Meo

VENTURE OUTSIDE!

Gear up your camper for a week or more of outdoor adventures at our day camp located in Anchorage on the campus of Alaska Pacific University. We take full advantage of this natural setting, making every day another opportunity for campers to go marching through the forest, practice target sports, or launch a canoe from the waterfront. In addition to a huge catalog of activities, games and our popular daily swim program, we structure each session to create a classic, outdoor summer camp experience.
