Summer Camps

Many of you have let us know that you are anxiously awaiting the news of our summer camp plans.  While so many things in our world have changed, one thing remains the same here at Challenger…we offer AWESOME summer camps!!!  

We are so excited to share our newest camp opportunity with you!  We are offering a Bermuda Virtual STEM camp.  Students from Alaska will join virtually with students in Bermuda as they learn together, share ideas, and make new friends from another culture.  One thing different about this camp is the students must apply to be accepted.  Please note that the application deadline is June 28, 2020.  The dates for the camps are July 13-17 and August 3-7, for students entering 6th – 8th grades.  

We will also be offering our on site summer STEM camps,  but as day camps only.  These camps are for students entering 4th – 6th grades and 7th – 8th grades on July 6 -10. 

More information about this camp an be found here CAMPS

You will find more information about all of our camps  in the attached links.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  

We can’t wait to see your students this summer!

#GivingTuesday!

Help Us Do It! #GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 3rd, and throughout the year.

Challenger Learning Center of Alaska has joined GivingTuesday to spread the word and love of this hopeful day. As a non-profit we understand the struggles many organizations face trying to keep the doors open, when all we want to do is teach our programs, to help shape the lives of our future generations. Many people are aware of our Simulated Space Missions and STEM workshops, but don’t realize everything else we do…

Corporate Retreats and Team building

Coldwater Survival Egress Trainings (CSET)

Helicopter Underwater Egress Training (HUET) Certification

Land Survival Training

Recreational Survival Training (CWSR), (WWSR), FIXED-WING DITCHING, KIDS DON’T FLOAT

Summer Camps

Facility Rentals- conferences, parties, meetings, banquets, receptions…

Dorm Rentals

Caring for the Kenai- Internationally recognized Environmental Contest

Despite all that we offer we are still looking to expand and give all that we can to our community. We are working on developing a Drone certification program and a Workforce Readiness Program. Our goal this December 3rd, is to raise $1,000 in 24 hours! These funds will help us with building maintenance, educational planning and supplies to facilitate our programs.

If you haven’t done so already, please tell your friends and family about our campaign. Spreading the word gets our voices heard and the donations rolling in! You can now give on our Facebook page by hitting the Donate button. Follow our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and share what you do for #GivingTuesday! We appreciate any little bit.

Adventure Camps

Adventure Camps at Challenger

We look forward to discovering the wonders of space and science with your camper!

Launch into an adventure of a lifetime where aspiring explorers discover the wonders of space and science.  Challenger’s camps inspire campers to seek out and follow their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through exciting hands-on activities.  During the five day camp, kids will get to design, build and explore across all the STEM disciplines. These innovators will get to put their theories to the test with materials like robotics,  simple machines, simulated space missions,  and food as they learn how things work.  They will have tons of opportunities for their creative side to emerge as well!  To learn more about each individual camp, follow me–>
