Camp Fire Alaska

Positions Available

Full Time, Part Time


Position Description

Work and play outside all summer at Camp K

Camp Fire Alaska’s co-ed, residential camp is nestled along the shores of beautiful Kenai Lake in Cooper Landing, approximately two hours from Anchorage. Camp K sits on 160 acres in the lush Chugach National Forest. Within spitting distance of main camp and your own cabin is a half-mile long beach with access to hiking trails, boating activities, large fields for outdoor games, an art building, as well as river rafting and horseback riding nearby. If you enjoy being outside every day, playing with and teaching youth while working with a team of passionate leaders, then this is the job for you. This is “wild Alaska” with everyday opportunities to be off the grid, experience wildlife, and take in the epic beauty right outside your cabin door.

Work begins with a week of training where you will not only have an opportunity to earn your Wilderness First Aid certification, but will also immerse yourself in cooperative, hands-on activities to learn to facilitate team-building activities, instruct outdoor skills, and coach youth. During camp, you will collaborate with a team to mentor and teach youth ages 6-17 to guide them through days of fun, educational activities that build lifelong social and emotional skills through outdoor learning.

Camp Nurse

DESCRIPTION: The Camp Nurse oversees the Camp Health Center and all health concerns at camp, using best practices for all aspects of risk management. Responsibilities also include ensuring that all camp staff and campers have current health forms completed; establishing health screening system and record keeping; following medical procedures for waste disposal, managing medications, and utilizing approved standing orders; making appointments and referrals as needed; and coordinating coverage during periods of unavailability. This member of the staff often pitches in elsewhere throughout the day to observe youth in various settings to ensure the total health of all participants. Kind, patient, and ever-generous with a smile, Camp K’s Camp Nurse knows that health care is emotional and physical and that sometimes some direct attention is exactly what the doctor ordered. From a trip to the hospital for an emergency to actively listening to a case of homesickness, the Camp Nurse is flexible, professional, and yet ready to camp it up as necessary.

PAY: $7,500/season + Room & Board

Training and Program Delivery Dates: May 17—Aug 10 (with time off mid-season)

Job Types: Full-time, Temporary
