365 SMART (Science, Math, Art, Recreation, and Technology) Academy

Summer 2021 is going to be grand as we will again be opening up campus for amazing learning adventures. Last year when our in-person summer day camps were shut down due to COVID, UAF Summer Sessions & Lifelong Learning created virtual day camps consisting of Zoom sessions, YouTube Videos, and kits of materials to provide hands-on activities at home. In the fall, we created the 365 SMART Academy, which provides virtual enrichment courses for K-12 homeschool students to supplement their academic curriculum.

This summer we will have the best of both worlds and are pleased to be able to offer 45 in-person day camps on the UAF campus for children who live in the Fairbanks North Star Borough. In addition, there are 51 virtual courses to be enjoyed by students throughout the state and beyond which are divided into two sessions, one beginning in June and one beginning in July. (Homeschool parents: Please refer to this page for instructions on how to handle registration.)

The information you have here is divided by the in-person camps and virtual courses. For more information, visit our FAQ page. You can also call 474-7021 or email summer@alaska.edu with any questions you may have.

Sign up for a virtual enrichment experience.

All courses consist of YouTube videos, weekly Zoom class meetings, and kits of materials to provide hands-on activities at home.

Join us in person for a half-day camp. Most camps take place on the UAF campus and run for one week, meeting for 3 hours/day.

Per the University of Alaska regulations and the CDC guidelines, all children attending Summer Sessions In-Person Day Camps will be required to bring and wear masks.
