Living and working at Camp Denali and North Face Lodge represent a lifestyle, not just a summer job. We are a community of approximately 50 people, ranging in age from 4 to 72. We share our summer home with up to 75 guests a day from all corners of the country and globe.
Our remote location and commitment to stewardship require us to be a resourceful team. More often than not, we bake it, we sew it, we build it, we fix it, we grow it, and we recycle it. A sense of place grows from the earnest work of maintaining this enterprise, from the camaraderie and friendships that grow, and from our commitment to provide the best quality experience for our guests in a setting that is beyond compare.
Working here can be an opportunity to learn a variety of skills and develop a strong work ethic, and it can be a place to grow professionally as a server, cook, housekeeper, maintenance worker, or naturalist. Each summer we employ new-to-Camp-Denali people as housekeepers and servers, kitchen helpers, cooks, operations crew members, and naturalist guides. Summer management positions and year-round jobs are often filled by returning staff. Most staff members work at both lodges and often work two or three different positions during the course of their workweek. Job descriptions and base wages for the various jobs can be found by clicking the Job Descriptions button at the left.
Wages are paid monthly. Pay is based on a 10-hour work day and a 5-day work week. Gratuities are pooled and divided equally among all staff. There is no charge for room or board during the summer season. We offer travel stipends for out-of-state employees.
