The Camps Initiative will offer nonprofits, tribes and cities an opportunity to expand camps that have been under-resourced and create access for all Alaska youth. Projects that focus on experiential learning also are eligible.

The Foundation is currently accepting applications. Successful requests will increase the number of children who can participate and/or improve the camp experience. Outdoor camps, culture camps, faith-based camps, museum camps and learning pods all will be considered.
