Salmon Camp



Salmon Camp provides high school and middle school students with an opportunity to learn about Bristol Bay salmon biology and management. Students participate in classroom studies in limnology, fisheries management and research, and work alongside professionals in the field. High school students successfully completing the camp earn one college credit.

Salmon Camp happens on the shores of Aleknagik Lake with three weeks of camp offering an experience to different age groups. Week one features 6th and 7th graders, week two 8th and 9th graders, and week three hosts 10th-12th grade students. It's a little education and a whole lot of fun! 

The 2022 BBEDC Salmon Camp has been canceled.  We are sorry to announce this cancelation, we have been unable to plan for this year's camp with good confidence that COVID rates will remain at a safe level throughout the region and not endanger those who would be involved.  BBEDC looks forward to being able to plan for conducting a safe and enriching 2023 Salmon Camp. Thank you for your understanding.
