Our Jobs

We are now hiring for the summer season! Our starting training date is May 16, 2022.

Steamboat Lake Outpost is a place where you will have many opportunities to experience new things and learn new skills. The Outpost is a place where you will be surrounded by people who care about you enough to challenge you to grow. Our organization is centered around inviting others in and serving them. All employees should expect to jump in to help housekeeping, clean dishes, and help in any area where there is a need. Working here requires a certain level of understanding, flexibility, and initiative. A positive, can-do attitude with an innovative approach and a willingness to roll up your sleeves and hop in whenever is needed will go a long way towards making your experience unforgettable.

There will be some days where you fall asleep as your head hits the pillow. Other days, as the sun sinks behind the mountains, you sit by the campfire with new friends, tell stories, and laugh far into the night. At the end of the day, we want to find ways to connect with people, provide compelling Rocky Mountain experiences, create a space where people can get away from distractions and be together in an authentic, life-giving way.

If this seems like a great fit for you, please apply!
