Year-round Programs

Fall In-Service Days

Summer 2022 was a blast! The season in Alaska is unparalleled, we love being outdoors with our friends and families, but fall and winter also bring their own seasonal fun. Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean it’s time to retreat indoors. At Trailside, we are committed to providing quality, safe, and educational programming for Alaskan youth all year long. We aim to keep kids active, exploring, learning, and having fun! We’re excited to continue with fall programming this year during school release days and our Winter Camp Sessions. Read on for more info!

Locations:

We will be at the Kincaid Bunker. Except for Nov 11 we will be meeting at The Equidome, located at the William Chamberlin Equestrian Center, 3900 Abbott Rd (right next to Ruth Arcand Park.
