The Fairbanks North Star Borough Virtual Summer Camp program is an exciting chance for children ages 5 to 13 to have a fun-filled summer! Campers engage in arts & crafts, outdoor adventures, snack making, STEM activities, and more all from the safety and comfort of their own home.
$25.00 per week - that’s only $5 per day! Each week includes a different theme, 2-3 hours of activities each day, Virtual “How To” videos from our staff, and ALL THE SUPPLIES YOU NEED!
The Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation Department is encouraging residents to spread joy and get creative at home with the 'Chalk Your Walk' contest.
Participants can enter the Chalk Your Walk contest by decorating their sidewalks or driveways with chalk. Chalk Your Walk features four theme divisions (Nature & Outdoors, Media - Comics, Movies, Characters, Coronavirus, and Creations involving People). See below for examples of each theme. All ages are welcome to participate and families are encouraged to work together on their art piece. Whether you are an expert, amateur or beginner artist, this event is for you!

The Fairbanks Summer Trails Challenge is here! Starting June 15th!
The Fairbanks Trails Challenge is an all-ages, all-abilities, outdoor scavenger hunt of epic proportions! Each summer, Parks Department staff temporarily installs special signs in secret locations along a dozen or so local trails. As you search for the signs, we hope you have a chance to learn new skills, see new places, and make positive memories!
