What Is a Nature Scout?
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!
Where will the Nature Scouts be exploring?
