Application Process

Thank you for your interest in working with us. 

As of March 26, we have 100% of the staff we need for summer 2014. 

We hire 44 seasonal staff each summer to join 6 year-round staff members to create a summer staff of 50 total. Usually 70-80% are returnees from a previous summer. The deadline for summer 2014 applications was Sunday 12 January 2014. 

If you find yourself looking for a 2015 summer seasonal job, please apply no earlier than November 2014 and no later than mid-January 2015.

To apply for any job with us, please email the following three items to

1) A letter that addresses:

  • How you heard about Camp Denali and North Face Lodge.
  • Why you want to work with us.
  • The job(s) you are applying for.
  • The relevant skills and experience you bring.
  • If you posses a current drivers license with less than three moving violations in the past three years.
  • Something about your work ethic.
  • A short description of your near-term goals.
  • An indication of your willingness and ability to commit to two summer seasons. Or for Naturalist Guides and Coordinators, three summers.
  • Your dates of availability; the first and last day you could be working in Alaska. (Our full season is late May through mid-September.  Strong preference is given to applicants who can work two entire summer seasons. Year-round applicants are asked to commit for three years.)

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

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

Please save your documents in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format. If this is not possible, please include them in the body of the email.

An hour-long phone interview followed by an in-person interview near your location with a Camp Denali representative is required.

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 season.
