About Camp Denali in 2023 Camp Denali is a small, family-run wilderness lodge located in the heart of Denali National Park. The Park Road is temporarily closed at its midway point, meaning that our only access is by air. In 2022, we successfully operated as a fly-in lodge and we will continue to do so until the Park Road reopens in 2025 (at the earliest). Our remote location combined with limited access informs our risk management efforts, including our policy that all staff and guests be up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations.
Position Description The Facilities Manager works cooperatively with management to maintain the physical infrastructure of the Company, which includes tools, equipment, buildings, vehicles and grounds. During the summer season, this person trains, supervises and instructs a 2 to 5-person crew comprised of skilled, semi-skilled and/or unskilled workers in the implementation of maintenance objectives. Pre and post-season work includes the opening and closing of the seasonal systems, the planning and procurement of inventory and hands-on work with construction projects in addition to assisting with hiring operations staff.
Compensation Salary is $4,500-$5,500/month, commensurate with training and experience. A high-deductible group health insurance plan, which can be paired with an employee-funded Health Savings Account (HSA) is offered. Health insurance premiums are currently paid 100% by the company; coverage continues through the off-season when it is the Facility Manager’s intention to return the following season. A retirement savings option is provided beginning in the third year of employment via a SIMPLE IRA; the employer provides an annually revised contribution of up to 3%, which may be dependent on employee participation. There are no charges for room or board during the summer season. Summer guest gratuities are pooled and divided equally among all staff, amounting to approximately $500/person/month. This position is eligible for the seasonal travel stipend, paid upon completion of a full season to help defray the cost of travel. Off-season work is paid monthly at an hourly rate of $25.00.
