These Camps have been updated recently!

Summer 2024 is going to be an absolute blast for kids, parents, and instructors!  We are pleased to offer 60 different camps, some with multiple sections for a total of 88 camps this summer for children who live in or will visit the Fairbanks North Star Borough in the summer of 2024.  Our camps cover a multitude of fun and educational subjects, including physical education, art, science, music, dance, life skills, and much more.

How to Register for Summer Camp:

Registration for all summer camps is completed through CampDoc.  New users will need to create a CampDoc profile to register.  If you have used Campdoc to register for previous camps or courses, you should use your existing profile to log in.

When choosing a grade level, choose the grade your student will be entering in the fall of 2024.

Deadlines for Payment and Health Profile

Payments are made through CampDoc. Please note that our camps require a non-refundable deposit that must be paid at the time of registration. If you register for a camp and decide not to attend, you MUST drop at least one week before the camp begins, or you will be charged for the full camp.

Completion of the health profile and full payment for summer camps are due one week before the first day of your camp. This is also the last date to disenroll from a camp/course for a refund of all but the non-refundable deposit. If final payments are not made, or the health profile is not complete one week before the first day of camp, you may lose your spot in the camp. All campers must have a completed health profile, and camp tuition must be paid to participate.

Non-refundable deposits are $25 for half-day camps and $50 for full-day camps. The non-refundable deposit amount is greater for multi-week camps. 

Scholarships are available!


Scholarships for 365 SMART Academy are available for students who qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch. If you are unsure if your family qualifies, check with your school or homeschool. Because we want our scholarship funds to reach as many children as possible, each child is limited to one scholarship. 

Summer Scholarships award a maximum amount of $200 per camp. The award amount can cover most half-day camps minus the $25 deposit, or it can partially cover the tuition of a full-day camp. 

*Please note* You will need to provide additional information with the scholarship application. Full scholarship instructions are on our website at uaf.edu/summer/k-12/. Please read the application instructions carefully. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (907) 474-7021 or email summer@alaska.edu.

Our 2024 Camp Scholarships are made possible by the RG & Onnie V Bouchum/ La Shina R. & Lloyd Jones Scholarship Fund, College Rotary Club, Downtown Rotary, the Doug Schamel Fund, and generous donations from various individuals.
