Daily Schedule

*This daily schedule applies to our in-person camps. The daily schedule for our 2020 virtual camps will become available at a later date.*  

The Academies' daily schedule is from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Participants must be picked up by 3:15 pm. Lunch is served around 11:15 am and provided at no extra cost to participants. The Academies do not provide additional snacks throughout the day, though participants are welcome to bring their own snacks (excluding peanuts). A short recess period is held directly after lunch, ending at about 12:30 pm. Please ensure that participants are dressed for the weather. Participants spend the rest of the day either in their assigned classrooms or in nearby labs.

On Wednesdays, participants go on a field trip from about 10:45 am to 1:30 pm. Participants walk about 1 mile to the Gorsuch Commons for lunch. Before or after lunch, participants will also view a film at the UAA Planetarium. If participants need assistance with the walk, please inform us as soon as possible.

On Fridays, parents, friends, and family are welcome to enjoy lunch with the students at 12:00 pm. After lunch, we invite everyone to walk back to the assigned classroom to watch the final competitions or exhibitions held from about 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. We ask all participants to help with clean-up after the final event. There is no requirement that family be present for lunch or the competition, but we highly encourage it.
