Denali Education Center Review
Situated on 10 acres of forest across from Denali National Park, this nonprofit offers something for everybody. You can rent a cabin with a shared bath or take part in intensive learning experiences that range from a variety of all-inclusive weeklong Road Scholar programs to weeklong youth programs, including hands-on research in conjunction with the National Park Service or backpacking trips for high schoolers. The center is open to both individuals and groups, although there are times when it's blacked out for groups, so check well in advance if you plan to stay here. On the first weekend of August the center sponsors the Fundraising Auction. The festival draws in hundreds of people and thousands of articles for sale, all for a fantastic cause. New for 2012 is a "Denali Bug Camp" for budding entomologists.
