Galena Lodge is an incredible place to live and work.

We are a beloved community-owned lodge serving many local customers as well as tourists. At Galena, your coworkers will quickly become your "Galena Family" and you will work hard and play even harder after work whether you are mountain biking, backpacking, flyfishing, paddleboarding, going to trivia in town or just enjoying a good book in a hammock.

These include mountain biking, hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, paddleboarding at Pettit lake, rock climbing, and of course Capture the Flag.  Camp runs M-F from about 8:00-4:30 except for the Thursday night overnight when you sleep under the stars and enjoy a campfire with the campers.

Housing: Free room and board provided in cabins, apartments, yurts etc. (some shared). We have a commercial kitchen full of delicious food that you are welcome to eat and cook after hours. 

Dates: Training starts June 2nd and camp ends on August 25th (there is an opportunity to continue working at the lodge in other positions)

Requirements: Wilderness First Responder or Wilderness First Aid, clean driving record, background check, ability to mountain bike
