Rating: 5 stars  

This organization provides so many great opportunities for families, students and community members to learn, have fun and get outdoors. They have something for everyone.

I have been involved with the CCSC for many years as a volunteer and board member. The work they do for the community is amazing. I am also a Big Sister to my Little Sister Amia. Prior to us being matched she was never involved in outdoor activities. Through her school she visited the Science Center where she snow shoed for the first time. Now that is her favorite outdoor activity. To think of all the kids that the Science Center has served that wouldn't otherwise experience the great outdoors makes me grateful to be a part of it all.

My sons love to attend the lectures at the Center - from seeing Snowy (the snow owl) to learning about salmon. I love to run on the trails and wave hello to the group of children learning on the river banks (and even grab a drink inside during my run). The Friends of Campbell Creek Science Center help keep all the projects, events and school groups enjoying this area. Thank you!

With a board of 12 dedicated volunteers, no staff and an incredible partnership with the BLM, the Friends of the Campbell Creek Science Center raise thousands of dollars for students to be able to experince the creek, walk through the woods, investigate science and learn ourdoors. The majority of our funding goes to scholarships for Title 1 schools and students, so that all can experience nature in the heart of Anchorage. Thank you to our major corporate sponsors and all of our Friends. Happy snowshoeing!

Campbell Creek Science Center provides a wonderful venue and excellent, balanced programming that connects children and families with opportunities to learn about energy and the outdoors. Two years ago, I attended an outdoor winter activities day at which they partnered with local businesses like REI to provide free use of gear for families who otherwise could not experience some of the great activities available right here in Anchorage. The staff and volunteers work hard to be a great organization making a difference.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are well-managed and offer great programs.

Alaska Power Association has been a donor to the Friends of the Campbell Creek Science Center and we found it to be a worthwhile use of our limited sponsorship budget. The work of the science center tied into the work we were doing on a project and it was a good match for both non-profit organizations. The center provided maximum recognition for our donation and has provided consistent follow up communications. I was so impressed with the work of the Friends of the Campbell Creek Science Center and the personal outreach efforts from board members Joette Storm and Mike Hanley that I started taking my family to their events and we become donors, as well.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the professional approach to donor relations, the friendliness of the volunteers and directors, and the high quality outdoor education programs they have for children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowlegable, friendly, welcoming and engaging.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do more outdoor education for target populations in Anchorage, Alaska.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
