In July, Coast Guard Forces Valdez hosted the AVV Chugach Challenge Day Camp during a fun filled afternoon in the sun.

Campers learned about the Coast Guard’s role in keeping our community and the boating public safe while they work and play in the waters of Prince William Sound. Campers toured Valdez-based Coast Guard facilities, got a chance to go aboard the Coast Guard Station’s small boats, and even received a special treat for demonstrating how to properly wear a life jacket!
