How do we ensure that our future leaders understand the contribution that complex natural systems make to a healthy society? With multiple partner organizations, we support more than 10 high school student leaders (from coastal and upriver Copper River communities) as they study the ecosystems of the Copper River watershed. They spend time in both the upper basin’s boreal forest and the delta’s rainforests, connecting it all. Adventures include multi-day overnight sailing trips from Cordova to Valdez, habitat stewardship projects that benefit fish and wildlife, and fun, creative writing exercises to help you find your voice. 

For more information on the program and to see projects from past stewards visit the CRSP program page

*In partnership with Copper River Watershed Project, Wrangell Institute for Science and Environment, US Forest Service, National Park Service, and the Bureau of Land Management. Open only to campers with a connection to the Copper River Watershed.

Scholarships are available for all of our camps!
