Founded over 100 years ago, Chena Hot Springs is the most developed hot springs destination in Alaska. World famous for its legendary healing mineral waters, beautiful Aurora Borealis displays in the winter, renewable energy projects and the Aurora Ice Museum-a year round geothermal technology wonder.  

 

Lost Lake Resident Camp

The Midnight Sun Council encourages any youth visiting Alaska to attend Scout Camp while here! If done before your High Adventure Trek it allows acclimatization and a chance to become more accustomed to Alaska.  Camp Lost Lake is on over 400 acres between the Tanana River and Birch Lake on the beautiful 90 acre Lost Lake. Camp Lost Lake also offers access to nearby hiking trails with some fantastic views.

Northern Lights High Adventure Base Update

 
2019 Signups are now finalized. This year is going to be a busy season and hold many adventures for scouts from across the United States. 
 
We have Troops or Crews from as far away as Florida and Connecticut traveling this summer to experience as much of Alaska as possible! Some are headed down the Yukon River and others are hiking around Denali. Others still are trying their hand at catching Salmon and Gold panning. They run a serious risk of filling their tummies and possibly striking it rich! 
 
Whatever adventure and thrills they are seeking.  The High Adventure Base treks really get out and around this year as well. We will be visiting the villages or cities of Homer, Valdez, Denali, Eagle, Circle, Anchorage and Fairbanks as well as throughout the Alaskan, Chugach, Yukon and White Mountain Ranges.  
 
We are confident they will have memories of this years visit to Alaska for the rest of their lives! AlaskacompareUSAmap
