Not coming to your school? A personal face-to-face interview is our first choice, but if Kanakuk is not coming to a campus near you or has already been to your campu, then we will review your completed application and work to set up a phone or video interview with you. 

 

LENGTH OF EMPLOYMENT

Lengths of employment vary from Kamp to Kamp, but staff are typically hired for either the first half of the summer or second half of the summer depending on availability. All staff are required to attend Staff Training in May.

 

COMPENSATION & TIME OFF

All of our summer staff positions are paid positions. Compensation is based off year in school and Kamp experience. A first year staff member will earn between $220 and $240 per week, plus $100 for Staff Training. Room and board is provided for all staff. Staff will also receive one day or two nights off each week. However, the real value of serving at Kamp cannot be measured in dollars.

 

VOLUNTEER

Each summer, a portion of our staff volunteer their time to help fulfill our mission and further our work in ministry. Money saved through these volunteers help provide scholarships to underprivileged Kampers as well as help fund various other ministries around the world. If you are interested in volunteering your time this summer, please ask one of our Director’s during the interview for more details.

Staff are responsible for their own transportation to and from Kamp. Many staff carpool together from different parts of the country. If you are flying, there are Kamp shuttle services available to and from the airport. For more information, e-mail transportation@kanakuk.com or call (417) 266-3100.
