Gateway to the Arctic is a non-profit, service-oriented, agricultural camp that teaches its participants about the significance of serving those in need and the value of hard work. Participants have fun while learning about sustainability, farming processes, and stewardship of the earth.

Gateway to the Arctic provides a variety of programming, including sessions for individuals who experience disabilities. All campers receive agricultural training and become equipped with the knowledge necessary to raise and harvest crops and animals. The resulting produce from the farm is donated to those in need or sold, with the proceeds directly benefiting programs that support the underprivileged of Alaska. As our campers learn about agriculture, they also learn about themselves and their potential to make a difference in the lives of others.

Gateway to the Arctic is committed to creating opportunities for people of all abilities and providing support to help them reach their potential. To that end, in addition to our camp programs, we have created inclusive job opportunities in partnership with Nadon Family Home. These opportunities provide meaningful work for those with special abilities. We believe that regardless of ability, we all need help to reach our fullest potential, and we are committed to providing that support for our employees.
