Fort Wainwright Active Living

Active Living can be the most rewarding part of the Alaska experience. It also builds and strengthens Arctic Tough leaders. We train hard in Alaska with three simple goals: deploy, fight, and win anywhere in the world. Our installation offers many resources to help Soldiers and Families to stay lively and rigorous, even through the long winter months. Whatever your interest, Fort Wainwright has activities and facilities to help everyone stay active and energetic.
