Application Process

Thank you for your interest in working with us. 

We will begin accepting applications for our 2017 summer season in the fall of 2016. Please check back on our website in early November for more information. 

When positions are posted, you will need to complete our online application (a link to which will be made live on this page when openings are available).  Make sure to upload the below requested items to your online application as one complete document. 


The following items are required as part of a complete application. When prompted to upload your resume, include all three items as one .doc, .txt, or .pdf document.  

1) A letter that addresses:

  • How you heard about Camp Denali and North Face Lodge
  • Why you want to work with us
  • The job you are applying for
  • The relevant skills and experience you bring 
  • If you possess a current driver's license with less than three moving violations in the past three years
  • A description of your work ethic
  • A short description of your near-term goals
  • An indication of your willingness and ability to commit to two years of seasonal (May-September) work in Denali (2017 Seasonal Positions) or to commit to at least three years of employment (Supervisory Positions).
  • Your dates of availability; the first day you could be working in Alaska. (Our operating season in the park runs from late-May to mid-September. Year round staff live and work at the park entrance area the remainder of the year.)

2) A current resume that indicates your education, volunteer, and work experiences.

3) Three professional references. Provide their names, titles if they have one, relationship to you, and contact information; usually an email address and phone number will suffice.

An hour-long phone interview followed by an in-person interview at a location convenient to you will be required. In addition, applicants for year-round positions may be required to travel to our property for a visit mid-season. 

We regret we are not able to conduct in-person interviews outside the U.S. International applicants must acquire a work visa that is valid through the length of their employment.

Feel free to send an email to or call 907-683-2290, should you have any questions.

I look forward to receiving your application and learning of your interest in working in a remote and tight knit community in the heart of Denali National Park.

Thank you,

Megan Martz, Personnel Manager
