Come Explore the Gift of Nature


Welcome to Into the Woods Alaska.


We are dedicated to providing an unparalleled youth & adult outdoor and environmental science education program emphasizing place-based, experiential learning. Our youth and adult participants alike learn environmental science, outdoor safety, teamwork, and survival skills that will keep them and their back country companions safe over a lifetime of exploring our world’s wild spaces.


Our programs are designed to foster authentic learning experiences that will not only last a lifetime, but encourage our participants to become actively engaged in conservation, protection, and sustainable use of our wild spaces. In our programs, participants learn specific and general safety skills through hands-on, active and experiential learning. We offer special courses with specific learning goals/certifications/skill sets in mind as well as general courses that introduce younger children to the concept of being an outdoor explorer. Check out our upcoming courses to see our year-round offerings by clicking “our programs” in the header above and taking a stroll through our website. Read more about us…

Amazing experience for children! Both of our boys (age 4 & 6) had the best experience at the summer camp at Kincaid. Our 6 YO is currently enrolled in the Wednesday camp at Russian Jack and is loving that too. Awesome teachers and the kids learn so much about the great outdoors. Highly recommend.

I really appreciate how well the guides and staff communicate with us. My son is so happy to be outside playing, learning, and growing with his friends. This type of hands on, experiential learning, is exactly what I want for my son. Thank you!

I love everything about this camp! My daughter was one of the youngest kiddos at camp (age 4). She struggled a little in the beginning and complained so I reached out to Kristina. She took the time to listen to my daughters concerns and came up with a plan to provide extra support for my kiddo. The next day at camp, my kid came home raving about how much she loved it and she didn't have a complaint after that. My daughter loves to tell us all she learned in the camp when we are hiking with her and we have noticed a HUGE improvement with her abilities on the trail. She has become an awesome hiker this summer and I am beyond grateful 🤗

Wow 🙂 Finally a camp that gets kids into the outdoors, pushing their comfort zone (a little) and teaches them skills that they truly need to explore Alaska. We are so happy to have our 10 year old with Dan and Christina again with Into the Woods and look forward to exploring some overnight adventures and other offerings as well. What a great team who offer a huge value and experience for the kids. Very happy with the experience, value, and professional approach.

This is a great experience for Alaskan kids to explore the outdoors in a safe and educational setting, while also getting to spend their days outside and not cooped up inside. So far this has been a great experience for our kids and they never want to come home at the end of the day.
