Commonly Asked Questions
Will I have to carry all my gear on my back for two weeks?
No. We operate out of several basecamps throughout Alaska. The team takes day trips including rafting, day cruises, hiking and more. The location of these basecamps allows access to some of the most beautiful remote places in Alaska.
What is the weather like?
It does not get much better than Alaska in the summer, and the sun is up almost 24 hours a day. Average daily summer temperatures are around 60-80 degrees with low humidity.
What is a typical day like?
Each morning we wake with coffee, hot chocolate and breakfast! Mornings begin with a daily devotional and then campers get ready for the next adventure. Students rotate as a group each day to plan and perform needed tasks such as cooking, navigating, gear cleaning and more. Daily team meetings help us prepare for the next great adventure. There are rest days scheduled for washing clothes, taking showers, resting and enjoying each other’s company. Each evening we are around a fire, next to a river, or on a glacier and share great conversations during our small group time.
