Denali Education Center
Learning vacations, authentic Denali experiences. A nonprofit partner of Denali National Park, we connect people to Denali through fun, informative, and inspiring programs for all ages. Our multi-day Learning Vacations build lifelong friendships, lasting memories, and a sense of connection to nature. We operate campuses in Denali's two gateway communities, Denali and Talkeetna. Our Denali Campus is located within walking distance of two park trails and only six miles from the main visitor facilities of Denali National Park. This campus offers a unique residential opportunity for in-depth learning. Participants enjoy guided walks and gain knowledge about the park through presentations given by local experts in ecology, natural history, arts, adventure, and regional culture. Group inquiries are welcome for learning vacation programs, dinner programs, or an educational lecture only. Not staying long or traveling with a group? Check our calendar for art exhibits, music, and free lectures scheduled throughout the summer. Traveling with kids? Tundra Tots is a weekly drop-in program for preschool-aged kids; Denali Discovery Camp is a week-long camp for 1st - 8th graders; and Denali Backcountry Adventures is a backpacking adventure for high school-aged students. Check our website for dates and youth program registration information. Our Talkeetna Campus is located within walking distance to the Village of Talkeetna's historic downtown. Group inquiries for educational lectures only are welcome at our Talkeetna campus. Whether in Denali or Talkeetna, we look forward to connecting you to Denali National Park and Preserve and wild places everywhere. Inform. Engage. Inspire. Get Denali!
