Inspiring the change we want to see, one exceptional guest experience at a time

Living and working at Camp Denali represents a lifestyle, not just a summer job. We are a community of approximately 30 people, ranging in age from 13 years old to 70 years young. We share our summer home with up to 24 guests at a time from all corners of the country and globe.

Our remote location and commitment to stewardship require us to be a resourceful team—we bake it, sew it, build it, fix it, grow it, and recycle it. Through the earnest work of running Camp Denali, we become rooted in the place and bonded to one another. Our shared commitment to providing the best quality experience for our guests in a setting beyond compare propels us through a fast-paced season.  

Working at Camp Denali can be an opportunity to learn a variety of skills and develop a strong work ethic. Each summer we employ new-to-Camp-Denali staff as housekeepers and servers, kitchen helpers, cooks, operations crew members, and naturalist guides.

Bringing flexibility and a willingness to help with a range of tasks is part of the ethos of Camp Denali. Most first year and returning staff can expect to work at least two jobs throughout the summer. The summer schedule is a balancing act of our staff's skills, experience, and interests, as well as company needs. We’ll seek to discover what combination of roles will be best for you as part of our application and interview process.

We work long days, averaging five 9.5-10 hour days/week, with two consecutive days off for a majority of the summer (although you may work less or more, depending on your department and company needs). Many shifts involve early and/or late hours. All of our jobs are physically demanding, and many work your head, heart, and muscles simultaneously.

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.

The day-to-day operations of Camp Denali appeared to run like a well-oiled machine. Ginny and Celia had a specific routine established for both guests and staff....This meant a long list of daily chores for the staff following a rigid daily routine. Ginny was definitive about how she wanted things done and made this clear to her employees. Everyone had a job, knew what it was, and knew exactly how they had to do it. Usually that meant doing it Ginny's way."
