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.
