General FAQ

2020's Kids Camps are available for viewing now and registration will open on February 24, 2020. If you have specific questions about camps, call us at 907-474-7021 or email summer@alaska.edu.

campTo register for camps, visit our secure CampDoc site, create a profile for your camper or choose their existing profile, and then select camps based on grade level.

Please note: If you are registering multiple children, you will need to set up separate profiles for each child.  If your child already has a profile in CampDoc, you will use that rather than creating a new one.

For the summer of 2020, camps will be paid in full upon registration. Please contact us ASAP if you have any changes in plans an need to cancel camp. 

 Choose the grade level that your child will be entering in the fall. 

For the summer of 2020, on-campus activities will not be available.

Summer Sessions & Lifelong Learning is offering a supervised lunch hour on campus for campers who are staying in the time between day camp sessions.

Staff will meet your camper at the conclusion of their morning camp, accompany them throughout the lunch hour, and escort them to their afternoon camp. Campers must bring their own lunch and be dressed for the weather including footwear appropriate for walking.

You can purchase the supervised lunch at the same time you register for camp, by choosing the Supervised Lunch Registration. There are separate registrations for each week of camp. The fee is $25 per week.

A limited number of camp scholarships are available for campers who qualify for Free & Reduced School Lunch and do not have another scholarship funding source.

Families are responsible for the non-refundable $25 deposit. Scholarships cover the remainder of the camp fee to a maximum of $205. Submit the completed scholarship application to the Summer Sessions office. One scholarship will be awarded per camper, as long as funding is available.

We understand summer plans can change.  Requesting a camp registration cancellation is done via CampDoc.  We will process the requested cancelation and refund any money that may be owed to you as a result.  

Please notify us of any requested cancellations as early as possible. We often have waitlists for camps and would like to move people in as soon as spaces become available.

UAF Campus is ADA compliant. You can learn more about the facilities on campus with this interactive map.

If you feel that your child might need extra accommodations or supervision, please contact us so we can discuss your options so your child and other campers can have a great and stress-free experience.  This information should also be included in your child's CampDoc profile so that the camp instructor will be aware of any special needs.

Sometimes instructors approach us with ideas about camps they would like to teach. Other times, we approach people who we believe would create amazing learning experiences for Fairbanks children. Our team of camp instructors range from teachers to grad students to researchers and community members.

One thing you can count on: Your child will have an instructor that is eager to share their skills and enthusiasm with the younger generation.

If you are interested in bringing your passion and skills to a younger audience in an engaging summer camp, contact the Summer Sessions office at (907)474-7021 or email summer@alaska.edu.
