Spring Work Weekend 2018

Join us for our Spring Work Weekend! We'll need all hands on deck to haul and stack firewood, re-gravel the pathways, and get Manitoba ready for a new season! 

Bring friends and family for a night out on the grounds and help Alaska Huts keep Manitoba looking fresh. From 12-3 for Kids to Parks Day we have fun activities planned, so be sure to bring the little ones.

There will be beer, drinks, snacks, and grilling materials (think brats and buns!). Please bring something to share for a community potluck meal, your working boots, and gloves. There will be coffee provided for the following morning, but please plan to bring your own breakfast!

We have limited bunks available**, so please RSVP to mailbox@alaskahuts.org for a bunk and grilled goodies!

**Spending the night? Reserve a bunk ASAP, and be sure to bring a sleeping bag and pillow. Tenting is also permitted, but remember that NO food or smelly items are to be left in tents.

Woodstock 2017

Alaska Huts invites you to join us for Wood Stock: an event for huts enthusiasts to help prep Manitoba Cabin for the winter season. And—if helping Alaska Huts prepare for the winter isn't enough to light your fire—we'll share a meal, drinks, a campfire and an evening of live music!

Bring friends and family to Manitoba Cabin to share the workload and excitement for Alaska Huts! We're looking forward to seeing you there! 

RSVP by emailing mailbox@alaskahuts.org to save a bunk or tent spot and to ensure a hearty portion of chili! 

Order of Events:

11:00 am: Roll up your sleeves and push a wheelbarrow—let's stack some firewood!

5:30 pm: Take a breather.

6:00 pm: Grab a spork and dig in: time to potluck!

8:00 pm: Enjoy some evening tunes to wrap up a day of hard work! 


 Can I stay the night at Manitoba Cabin after Woodstock?

- Yes! If you plan to stay the night at Wood Stock you may either pitch your own tent or reserve a bunk. If you intend to stay the whole night please e-mail mailbox@alaskahuts.org.  Bunks are limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. If you don't plan to stay the night, please still RSVP to get a bowl of chili (and let us know if you are vegetarian!).

How much are bunks?

- Bunks are FREE! We do ask that you commit at least 3 hours of volunteer time in exchange. 

Can I bring my dog? 

- Well-behaved dogs that get along well with people (and other dogs) are welcome to join, but if you are able to leave your dog at home that would be great. 

What tools should I bring? 

- We're always grateful for wheelbarrows and dollys. Dress to work outside!

What's for dinner? 

- We'll be having a potluck! Huts staff will provide the main course: chili, both with and without meat. We ask that you also bring a side dish, dessert, or drinks (or all 3!) to share. 

Where should I park my car? 

- Park at Mile 48 of the Seward Highway and follow the path to Manitoba.
