Beyond your hourly wage


Some of the most meaningful perks of working at Camp Denali, and the ones our staff value most, are three intangible benefits that shape the overall staff experience and our staff culture:

  • Intentional Community–live and work with a small group of people who are present and invested in cultivating relationships and shared experiences with one another
  • Location, Location, Location–Denali National Park will be your summer home and your six-million-acre backyard
  • Shared Values–be part of a small, family-run business that is mission-driven 

Financial Perks

  • Employee housing and all meals at Camp Denali are provided for free. 
  • Work a schedule that offers overtime hours–any hours over eight per day or 40 per week earn time and a half.
  • Receive a share of pooled tips, based on the number of hours worked each month; these tips typically average $500 per person per month.
  • Transportation to and from Alaska is your responsibility, but everyone who completes the full season receives a travel stipend to defray the costs. 
  • We offer a SIMPLE IRA program with a company match at the highest level, which is 3%. Eligibility to participate begins when you enter your third year of employment with Camp Denali.
