A Safe Place For Kids Whose Families Must Return To Work
As Anchorage School District continues online-only instruction, The Dome is offering a daytime camp for families who work essential jobs and don’t have other options for supervising their kids. Open to kids ages 6-12 who have attended at least one year of school, we’ll be providing a safe venue for socialization, activity, and time for schoolwork. Families who have registered for either the remote “ASD In School” or "ASD Virtual" options will find this camp helpful. Those enrolled in "ASD Homeschool" may not find this camp to be a good fit. For more information on education options, visit ASD at https://www.asdk12.org.
Starting online, expecting to return to in-person school once allowed.
Best fit for our camp!
Kids who are choosing not to return to in-person school. Requires parents to be the student’s learning coach.
Good fit for our camp if the majority of learning is being done at home.
Someone in the home will assume the roll of full-time teacher.
Based on our Summer Camp practices, this camp will not be a school - but we’re building in time for kids to do their work, along with plenty of physical activity and fun.
Our space in this camp is very limited. We’re trying to do something to help our community during this incredibly difficult time, and we ask that you please leave camp spots to families who don’t have other options for their kids during the day.
Operating Camp Safely During COVID-19
In order to keep our staff and our campers safe, and to comply with state and local requirements, we’ll be operating Day Camp at The Dome with the same safeguards as our Summer Camp.

What about school?
The Dome Day Camp is not a school program - we won’t be teaching your kids their school lessons or tracking their work. But we will be making it easy for your kids to do the work assigned by their teachers:
- During the day we’ll have blocks of quiet work time in between physical activity.
- We’ll help kids log in and access their online work.
- We’ll keep track of when it’s time for your kids’ live class sessions and make sure they’re ready to go.
- We have a great wireless network and we’re boosting our bandwidth to allow our whole camp to be online as needed.
