Nanook Expedition Camp
Want more than just a backyard experience this summer? Get out into Alaska on daily expeditions! Campers will be challenged both physically and mentally as we travel off campus to meet adventure face to face. With this camp we are taking all the skills we cover in the Nanook Adventure Camp and putting them into action in nature. We will spend one day on UAF’s campus taking advantage of the many recreational opportunities, such as indoor rock climbing, rappelling off the outdoor climbing tower, and hiking the campus trails. The rest of the week we will be rock climbing at Grapefruit Rocks, hiking in the Chena State Recreation Area, honing our paddling skills at Tanana Lakes, and finally floating one of the interiors beautiful rivers. All of this will take place under the expert supervision and instruction of the DRAW staff members. This camp is a great step up for all campers with previous Nanook Adventure Camp experience.
