Summer Programs

Lingít Aaní Trail Works Camp

Following a pilot week in 2022, Sitka Trail Works launched a 6 week summer program in 2023 in partnership with the Sitka Tribe of Alaska. Learn more about our summer in this story map created by Cultural Coordinator Kushxeet Sienna Reid. In 2023 camp was aimed towards middle schoolers, but stay tuned for what age groups we will be serving in 2024!

Summer Internship Experience

In 2023 we hired two 16 year old interns through the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida’s Youth Employment Services Program. The interns completed ten weeks with Sitka Trail Works that included a week long training period including bear safety, marine first aid, tool safety, trail maintenance, leadership and communication. The Interns then helped lead the Lingít Aaní Trail Works Camp. After camp concluded, interns and other program staff did a two-week trail crew experience working on sites like Medvejie Lake and the Cross Trail.
