Application Process

Thank you for your interest in working with us. 

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. 

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 check back regarding application instructions closer to November 2014. The following items will be required as part of a complete application.

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 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 summer seasons (three summers for Naturalist Guides and Coordinators)
  • 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 a full season.)

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

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.

Please save your documents in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format. 

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.


Thank you,
