Just For Kids

art_campAt the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge, we love to work with kids! Whether pre-schooler or teenager, young people have numerous opportunities to take part in Refuge activities and programs.

Our educational and fun summer programs continue to be popular experiences.

Summer Programs 

The Refuge offers summer programs for all ages and interest levels. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to attend some very special camps and programs this summer.

Camp offerings:

  • Water Orientation Day - day camps for youngsters 8 and up focusing on wetland ecology, animal observation, water safety and introductory canoe skills.
  • High School level course – students can receive up to 1 full HS credit for this class – subjects rotate yearly between Ornithology, Fire Science, Boreal Botany and Environmental Literature.
  • Habitat Camp – a 3 or 4 day canoe trip onto the Refuge (ages 10 and up)
  • Art Camp –a 3day “observation through art” camp at Deadman Lake (ages 10 and up)
  • Carnivals – scattered throughout the summer

Pre-registration camps have limited space available and require planning ahead.

There is no charge for any of these activities.
