Year-round Programs

Summer 2021 was a blast! Summer in Alaska is unparalleled, we love being outdoors with our friends and families but Fall and Wintertime bring their own fun as well. 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 on this year, with some fall programming during school release days, in addition to our Winter Camp Sessions.
