What is a Denali Detective?
Mystery is at the core of learning for Denali Detectives. Led by instructors who specialize in Denali’s natural history, Detectives use guided inquiry to explore and discover Denali in new ways.
Whether your child learns best in nature, the classroom, or elsewhere, Denali Detectives supports your child’s educational strengths while challenging them to think in new, fun ways with peers on the adventure of the summer! Denali Detectives have one night of camping at Teklanika Field Camp.
If your child has a curiosity for nature, adventure, and learning, then go ahead and have them join the Denali Detectives this summer in Denali!
