Come back soon to view our new Camp Denali Employment website, with more photos and information about what it's like to live and work with us!  Going live November 2019!

We are now accepting applications for our 2020 seasonal summer staff!  We are also presently hiring for one year-round position (Program Manager), and one seasonal Supervisory position (Facilities Manager).  Visit the job descriptions page to learn more, and apply.  We are currently reviewing applications and will continue to do so until positions are filled.  

Living and working at Camp Denali and North Face Lodge represents a lifestyle, not just a summer job.  We are a community of approximately 50 people, ranging in age from 7 months to 65.  We share our summer home with up to 75 guests 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. 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 link at the bottom of the page.

Wages are paid monthly.  Pay is based on a 10-hour workday and a 5-day workweek.  Gratuities are pooled and divided equally among all staff. Room and professionally prepared meals are provided free for the summer. A travel stipend is paid upon completion of a full season.  In recognition of the professional commitment many of our staff have made to this lifestyle, we offer a SIMPLE IRA to staff beginning in their third year.

This opportunity to work in Alaska, experience Denali National Park on an intimate level, and connect deeply with a community of individuals working toward a common goal, is uncommon, to say the least.  Follow the links below to read more about our process and operation.
