Welcome to the Anchorage Daily News 2021 Summer Camp Guide! School will be out soon and it’s the perfect time to plan for summer activities. The listings included here were collected during early spring - a very different season than the spring prior, yet still with many unknowns - and camp details may have changed. We recommend checking with each camp your child may be interested in for updates.
