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 2021 BBEDC Salmon Camp has been canceled.  BBEDC would prefer to be an active participant in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19. With the unavoidable close contact and interaction with children, teenagers, and adults in skiffs and cabins, along with BBEDC’s current travel ban, we feel it is important to cancel the camp in 2021. BBEDC looks forward to being able to plan for conducting a safe 2022 Salmon Camp.
