Check out our Summer line-up!
Alpine Ridge Leadership
June 27-July 2
Develop leadership skills while enjoying stellar views of Grewingk Glacier and Kachemak Bay. On Alpine Ridge we’ll be balancing fun, learning, and trail work, helping Kachemak Bay State Park maintain trail access into a beautiful alpine landscape. Expect merriment, frigid lakes, and sun-drying on the banks.
Fire and Ice
July 12-July 16 (SOLD OUT)
July 19-July 23 (NEW DATES AVAILABLE)
Explore local trails and learn skills that are essential for having adventures in the Alaskan wilderness. Camping is better when you can light a warm fire and avoid being eaten by a bear. Practice your skills on an overnight expedition to Grewingk Glacier Lake. Grewingk Lake features an epic Capture the Flag court and ice bergs thrones (if you can brave the swim).
Upper Tutka Bay Exploration
Join us for an epic goodbye to summer! Paddle board in Tutka Bay, swim in subalpine lakes, and snack on autumn berries. The Tutka Backdoor trail is brand new, so be ready for some trail work and an adventure.
howl instructor training
by invitation only
Experienced outdoor educators and aspiring volunteers will spend six days learning HoWL's unique teaching methodology while doing trailwork and exploring the vastness of Kachemak Bay State Park. We'll practice remote risk management scenarios and discuss topics in the outdoor industry while we interact with the flora, fauna and topography of the Grewingk Glacier Valley and surrounding ridgelines. In 2021, the IT Trip will be led by HoWL's founder, Libby Bushell.
