Camp Fire Alaska | Light the Fire Within

Summer Adventure

DISCOVER FUN!

Our licensed program runs all day at elementary schools in Anchorage and Eagle River. Your child can join us for a week or the whole summer! Each day features a variety of hands-on activities where everyone has the opportunity to experience sports, arts and crafts, cooking, science, and community projects. Theme weeks, dress-up days, and more are all included. If you want your child to learn new skills, get outside, make new friends, play hard and have quiet time, then this is the program for you!

 

Current Locations are set for Spring Hill, Lake Otis and Homestead. These may be subject to change up until mid-April. Registered families will be notified of any location changes.

Camp Activities

arts
Creative Arts

Camp is full of creative experiences each and every day. We encourage performance art through skits and talent shows, hands on crafts using a wide range of materials from beads to paint to natural objects found outdoors, as well as special daily activities that tie into each weekly theme.

team building
Team Building

Team building activities encourage leadership and communication skills, and challenge campers to step out of their comfort zone as they learn to trust themselves and others around them.

cooking
Cooking

Learning to follow a recipe and measure ingredients, making and serving snacks, and learning where our food comes from and how it gets to us is all a part of our camp curriculum.

science
Science

Mad science and laboratory experiments, new discoveries at NASA and in our solar system, STEM activities, and more will excite young scientists all summer long.

nature
Nature and Outdoor Living

We explore our urban environment—from nature walks to outdoor scavenger hunts, we focus on learning about the plants and animals that live around us, how they impact us and how we impact them. We show kids how to engage with the natural world around them, why unplugging from technology is good for you, and the importance of getting outside each day.

games
Games

We've got traditional sports like tennis and soccer, group games like tag and Mafia, as well as indoor games when we need them. But we've also got some amazing camp games that you won't find everywhere—Gaga, Nine Square, and our version of the popular Color Campaign.
