What is a Denali Detective?
Detectives use their powers of observation to obtain information and evidence about a situation, place, or individual. They look for clues in their surroundings to investigate something that happened in the past. The Denali Detectives will spend their week searching for and discovering clues about Denali’s wilderness and the creatures that live there.
Denali Detectives should come to camp equipped with their powers of observation, cleverness, and problem solving skills to investigate the recent past and deep history of Denali’s trailed and trail-less terrain.
