9 aM – 3 PM
Taking inspiration from both Denali Discovery Camp and Wild Wonders (offered by the Northern Susitna Institute in the past), Talkeetna Discovery Camp aims to inspire awe and exploration in young people. Through hikes, science, art, and just plain fun, campers will be immersed in the natural world, exploring with their peers and fostering respect and love for their surroundings.
2024 Camp Dates:
July 8 – 12th, 1st/2nd Grade
July 15 – 19th, 3rd/4th Grade
July 29 – August 2nd, 5th/6th Grade
August 5 – 9th, 7th/8th Grade
Registration opens March 4th!
Hired from our local community and beyond, our instructors know their stuff! All staff have experience working with youth, have a minimum of First Aid/CPR certifications, have a love of the outdoors, and know that learning should be fun! We have a minimum ratio of 5:1 students to staff. Younger groups may also have a high school-aged Instructor-in-Training in addition to their two Instructors.
Talkeetna Discovery Camp happens at the Denali Education Center’s Talkeetna Campus unless otherwise noted in camper material. All camp activities take place in and around the local Talkeetna community; there are currently no overnight options available.
While vaccines are not required, COVID testing may be required using kits supplied by the DEC. Mask requirements will mirror current CDC recommendations. If a camper needs to be removed for a health-related reason, DEC will work closely with the guardian to ensure the camper’s safety and privacy.
