What Is a Nature Scout?
Play is at the heart of learning for Nature Scouts. Led by instructors who specialize in early childhood education, Scouts use their five senses to explore and discover Denali in new ways.
Whether your child learns best in nature, the classroom, or elsewhere, Nature Scouts supports your child’s educational strengths while challenging them to think in new, fun ways with peers on the adventure of the summer! Nature Scouts have one night of camping at Riley Creek Campground.
If your child has a curiosity for nature, adventure, and learning, then go ahead and have them join the Nature Scouts this summer in Denali!
