A Safe Place For Kids Whose Families Must Return To Work


During Anchorage School District's first quarter, 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.

ASD In-School
Starting online, expecting to return to in-person school once allowed.

Best fit for our camp!

Image

ASD Virtual
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.

Image

ASD Homeschool
Someone in the home will assume the roll of full-time teacher.

Not the best fit for this camp.

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 Fall Day Camp at The Dome with the same safeguards as our Summer Camp.

The turf is yours, the track is yours, The Dome is yours! Kids will even get to enjoy our new, state of the art laser tag system. Join us in the largest indoor playground in Alaska!

What about school?


The Dome Fall 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.

What Will My Camper Need To Bring?

Every camper will need to bring the following items with them each day. Campers each have an individual enclosed cubby (plastic tote) they can store items in.

Water bottle - our touchless bottle filler is available and sanitized every hour with a food-grade sanitizer.

Login information - send your camper with all of the usernames and passwords they’ll need to get into their device and access their school’s online system.

Active clothing & footwear - kids will be running around throughout the day. Send your camper wearing clothes and shoes they’ll be safe and comfortable playing hard in.

Mask - all staff members and campers are required to wear a mask. We’ll be taking routine mask breaks, and there are numerous times during the day when masks will be off for eating and drinking.

School supplies - campers should bring any books, papers, pencils, and other materials they need for each day’s schoolwork.
