Trailside Discovery Camp

Trailside Discovery Camp is an award-winning camp program in Alaska that provides a broad range of outdoor environmental education experiences for students ages 4 to 16 from all economic, social, and cultural backgrounds. We provide summer camps at the Campbell Creek Science Center in Anchorage and Spring Creek Farm in Palmer. We also offer special winter and spring programs during school breaks.

Alaska Youth for Environmental Action (AYEA) is a program of The Alaska Center that inspires and trains rural and urban youth leaders to impact environmental issues by providing leadership skills training and supporting youth-led community action projects and campaigns. We are committed to a youth-led model, in which teens choose the issues AYEA works on, and teens are the leaders in all AYEA campaigns and projects. Adult mentors and staff provide essential support to help the teens learn the skills they need to successfully reach their project goals.
AYEA has engaged over 5,000 teens since we started in 1998 through an array of local and statewide campaigns and projects. Youth in AYEA come from a diverse array of cultural, geographic, economic, and social backgrounds.
