Trailside Discovery is the largest environmental education and adventure camp in Alaska. Our programs emphasize interactive, enjoyable, hands-on outdoor experiences.
Established in 1982. Trailside Discovery is owned and operated by Alaska Center for the Environment, a nonprofit, member-supported advocacy organization that protects and promotes Alaska’s wild lands, and the communities and wildlife that depend on them.
Trailside Discovery Camp is located at the Campbell Creek Science Center in south Anchorage on 740 acres of pristine wilderness. Campers ages 4 -17 slog through bogs, explore forests, tread gently across trails, learning about nature while immersed in it.
