The ASYMCA is excited to present the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop Adventure! Moms and their sons will travel to Portage to catch a ride on the Alaska Railroad. Next stop… the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop where everyone will enjoy a hike to the beautiful Spencer GLacier. This is a wonderful way to learn about Alaska’s backcountry and natural wonders.

  • When: August 13th, train departs at 1:25pm and returns at 5:15pm
