Botany on Bikes July 12th-16th
What better way to explore the world of plants then by bike? Students will learn basic bike maintenance and safety as well study the different plants along Anchorage's trail system. Students will explore 110 acres of gardens and boreal forest learning to identify native plants, weeds, beneficial insects, and critters living in nearby Campbell Creek, Goose Lake and Baxter Bog. Campers should be able to bike up to 8 miles per day. Students will need to bring their own bike and helmet. If you do not have access to a bike or helmet please contact ABG staff and we will work with the local bike coop to secure the necessary gear for the week. Expert staff lead campers through fun, hands-on, science-based environmental education activities. All camp materials are provided as well as weekly take-home projects. Adult to camper ratio is 1:8.
Our camps are held outside rain or shine in our tent covered outdoor garden classroom. Campers staying the full day should pack a lunch and snacks for each day. All campers need to bring extra clothing layers, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, closed-toed shoes (no sandals), and a backpack. Please leave all toys and electronics at home. Books are always welcome.
Full Day camp runs from 9:00am-3:30pm. Campers enrolled in our before and after care may be dropped off as early as 8:30am and must be picked up by 5:15pm. Extended care is $75/child/week; no refunds for cancellations or adjustments made during their week of camp. Any changes to your child's drop-off or pick-up times must be made at least 24 hours in advance in writing or in person to the Camp Director, Stacey Shriner.
There is a $25 cancellation fee up to 10
days before the start of camp. No refunds given with less than 10 days
notification. Please call the Camp Director, Stacey Shriner at
