  • Half-Days vary - following the Chugach Optional and ASD 2022/23 calendar 
  • Pick up from Chugach Optional Elementary School and an afternoon spent exploring the Chanshtnu (westchester) Lagoon and its greenbelt!


This school year, our Afternoon Program in the West Chester Creek Greenbelt explores the wild/urban connection that exists in our West Chester Creek Greenbelt, Westchester Lagoon, and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. The focus will be outdoor studies, sports, and environmental science through hands-on learning and play. Topics and themes will loosely follow the seasons and the weather, and we take learning opportunities as they occur through exploration and observation.

 COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: In addition to following State of AK and CDC guidelines, we will follow both ASD and each school's guidelines based on the program we are operating. All of our guides are vaccinated and we will be wearing masks in indoor spaces, and potentially outdoors depending on the level of risk in the community and as recommended by local and national health officials.

 OPERATING CALENDAR: Our after school programming runs from Mid August to Late May, following the Anchorage School District 2021/2022 calendar and the Chugach Optional specific half-days.
