Salmon Sign

Grades: K – 8

Time: June – August

Cost: $90 - $225 (scholarships available)
The mission of Salmon Camp is to educate Kodiak’s youth about the natural and cultural systems that define Kodiak’s geography and empower learners to investigate their own connections to this special place through hands-on learning, self-reflection and group discovery.

Since 1996, Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, in conjunction with Alaska Geographic and the Kodiak community, has sponsored the Kodiak Summer Science and Salmon Camp. Within two years of its inception, Salmon Camp became the largest science-based camp in Alaska. In 2002, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recognized Salmon Camp as one of its top five environmental education programs in the nation. This camp serves students from kindergarten through 8th grade.

The Kodiak Refuge has created a lottery process for Salmon Camp Registration eligibility in an effort to make access to Salmon Camp registration as equitable as possible for all those interested.

Drop off registration forms from January 16th-March 26th, 2016 to enter the lottery. Fill out one entry form per student.  Registration opportunity will be based on the order drawn.  We will notify families of the results by phone by April 4th.  If you are notified that your name was drawn, complete enrollment by either making payment or processing a scholarship request.  Remaining entries will be put on the waiting list in the order drawn.  After April 4th, any remaining spaces will be open for normal registration.

Sign up for the grade level your child will be in the Fall 2016.
