Regenerative Impact

With a history intertwined with the preservation of Denali National Park, Camp Denali honors the legacy of its founders by exploring the human-nature relationship that embodies the essence of Alaska.

With a long time commitment to clean energy, Camp Denali continuously explores methods to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. In 2021, the lodge completed the installation of a 90- kilowatt solar array, which provides 90% of Camp Denali’s electrical needs. Additional efforts include converting propane-fueled light fixtures to LED bulbs powered with rechargeable batteries.
Guests are given an exclusive inside look as they go behind the scenes of Camp Denali’s sustainability practices. By demonstrating and promoting the practical use of solar thermal power, passive solar hot water, composting, and growing food, guests can take this knowledge home with them and apply it in their own settings.
Since its founding, Camp Denali continues to uphold a long legacy of advocacy by supporting mostly in-state organizations that focus on environmental stewardship, land conservation, education, and community. Organizations include Alaska Geographic, National Parks Conservation Association, and Audubon Alaska.
Far from the lines of supply, Camp Denali seeks to lower its environmental footprint by purchasing from in-state sources. Using a guide to support its food purchasing, 100% of the meat, poultry, and seafood served in the dining room is Alaska-grown. Furthermore, the greenhouse provides the kitchen with lettuces and greens, herbs, edible flowers, peas, beans and rhubarb, eliminating the need to transport these items over long distances.
