Camp Kulis is the unofficial but widely used name referring to an area north of the flightline on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, near Anchorage, Alaska. The area includes a headquarters building, pararescue facility, and several other installations used by the Alaska Air National Guard's 176th Wing.

The name comes from the former Kulis Air National Guard Base, which was the wing's home from its opening in 1955 through its closure in 2011 as part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. The base was named, in turn, after 1st. Lt. Albert Kulis, a young fighter pilot who lost his life in a plane crash shortly before the base opened.

The 176th Wing moved from Kulis Air National Guard Base to Camp Kulis in February, 2011.
