Welcome to Into the Woods Alaska.
We are dedicated to teaching kids from a young age through their teen years 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. We believe that kids who grow up playing in the woods will become adults who advocate for its protection; for this reason, we combine the idea of being a naturalist in addition to recreating in our wild backyard.
In our programs, kids learn specific and general safety skills through hands-on, active play and experiential learning. We offer special courses with specific learning goals 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. Read more about us…
