Great summer opportunity with Camp Fire to serve Alaska’s kids and engage rural communities! Travel to communities throughout the state from the Aleutians to the Arctic Circle bringing programs that focus on community engagement from youth to elders, outdoor recreation, and healthy life choices.
Staff teams provide two, three, or four-week long traveling day camp programs to rural communities. Primary duties include, developing and implementing quality youth and community programs. Activities may include swimming, cold water safety, hiking, biking, outdoor education, arts and crafts, group games, team building, cooking, and sports.
