Get outside. Explore your imagination!
Wild Rose Summer Camp is an outdoor educational camp providing children with an enthusiastic experience of the outdoors through garden, field and woodland activities along with a creative art program. Both are designed to nourish and strengthen, as well as enrich the growing child.
We acknowledge that we live on the unceded lands of the Tanana Khwt’ana, who are an active and integral part of the life and community here.

Wild Rose Summer Camp surrounds children in the outdoors-running, jumping, playing games, working in mud, and working with beautiful materials in artistic projects. Please dress your child in old clothing; tie dyeing, plant dyeing and mud construction can be very messy! We hope the weather will be warm and sunny but please provide clothing that will keep your child warm in rainy conditions.
The medical history form and the authorization and release form are important for parents to complete and sign. These forms can be mailed to Wild Rose Summer Camp, P.O. box 83271 Fairbanks, AK 99708 or brought on the first day of camp. These forms must be received before your child may attend camp.

- Name of child
- Name of physician
- Daily amount only
- Time to be given and directions for administration
