Tundra Tots is a toddler and preschool program that employs storytelling, play, and art to provide meaningful outdoor experiences for the whole family. Tundra Tots will get your kids laughing, learning, and exploring all the wonders that Denali has to offer! Each week will feature a new leader and theme. Throughout the summer we will navigate the Nenana, frolic through the taiga forest, and tumble on the tundra.
Parents stay and play and with us! $5 suggested donation per program.
