FVCS Adventure Summer Camps

In Girdwood and the neighboring valleys, kids in the Outdoor Adventure Camps with Four Valleys are getting out, getting dirty, and having a blast. July is packed with such camps, focusing on different activities, while outdoors and fun are the highlights. Kids stay active with day hikes, games, and other exciting adventures. Education is a direct effect of all the engaging days.

Forget-me-not-Fridays included rhubarb, lemonade, herbs, edible flowers as pizza toppings, beach play, and more. Kids dug into the glacial silt and Alaska snowmelt with both Gold Rush Days and Rivers and Hydrology Camp. There’s so much to do in Girdwood this summer, and the good news is that two Adventure Camps remain in July.

This week it’s Around the World with Games and Art for K-3rd and 4th-7th grades. Kids in the Kitchen is July 17 and 19 and Adventure Sports Camp completes the series July 24-28. Each camp has K-3 and 4th-7th grade groups from 9a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. respectively.

Thank you to Forget-me-not-Nursery, Chugach Adventures, and Crow Creek Mine for the most recent successful camps. FVCS popular summer soccer league is nearly in the net for the season and the Girdwood Fine Arts Camp rounds out the summer program in August.

Adults: Yoga with Briana returns for a summer session beginning July 19 at the refreshing hour of 9 a.m. Commit, drop-in or stretch a few times for your health. Visit fourvalleys.org for more information and registration. Find more colorful photos of all the summer fun on FVCS’ Facebook page.
