VOLUNTEER DAY – 2016
On Volunteer Days, people from throughout the community lend a hand with campus improvement projects. Individuals and community groups contribute greatly to our campus and programs throughout the summer.
This summer we had a wonderful Volunteer Day full of camaraderie, projects, and fun! On the docket this year our tasks ranged from trail building to painting; gardening to window-washing. After a day of toiling over our assigned tasks, a hearty lunch was served and the campus looked wonderful! We look forward to seeing you all again next year at our next Volunteer Day!

Each summer the Denali Education Center seeks volunteers to act as hike sweeps for our residential program hikes. We offer hikes for residential program participants most Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Volunteers help with these hikes for safety reasons, to add to the enjoyment of the group, and to learn from our field educators.
Volunteer hike sweeps walk at the end of the group to make sure that no one is left behind and to provide company and encouragement to participants. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with the Denali Education Center and to get to know some interesting people.
If you are interested in volunteering as a hike sweep please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 907-683-2597.
