Sharing Alaska's Arctic with the World
Yukon River Camp, Coldfoot Camp, and Deadhorse Camp are each owned/operated by a small Alaska-based company. We recognize it is the quality of our coworkers that provides the critical ingredient to the creation of a great hospitality experience for our guests. A great workplace starts with shared values, thus it is our goal to attract coworkers who believe: that PROFESSIONALISM and INTEGRITY are not innate characteristics but, instead, daily decisions; that because we are what we repeatedly do, EXCELLENCE, then, is not an act but a habit; and, finally, that a great workplace cannot be achieved if it is not built on a foundation of positive, trust-based coworker relationships --- an impossible task without the shared values of RESPECT and JOY.
