Since launching our inclusive employment program in 2017, our employees have focused on learning carpentry, from writing up blueprints to putting the finishing touches on a project. Their handiwork can be found all over the camp, from the picnic tables in front of the lodge to the end tables in Ted’s Shed. They’ve also worked on projects such as movable chicken coops, a fence for the garden, and benches for the lodge.
Now, Gateway to the Arctic Camp is partnering with Anchorage re:MADE, a nonprofit that repurposes and sells clothing, furniture, and household items. At re:MADE, our employees are able to continue honing their carpentry skills and making a difference in their community.
