Our Staff | Kanakuk Kamps
  • OUR STAFF HEARTBEAT

    Are you looking for a summer job that will change your life? Do you love kids and have a passion for serving them with your life? At Kanakuk, we are passionate about revolutionizing America's culture by evangelizing and equipping the next generation of leaders who will reach the world for Christ. Each summer, the Lord uses over 2,000 dedicated, kid-loving, Christian college students from across the country who are committed to pouring their life out and showing 16,000 kids and families what it looks like to follow Christ in a real way. Our staff shows kids that it's fun to be a follower of Christ through their words, relationships, and lives.

    It is a calling that we take very serious. We believe that the Great Commission is not a set of words on a page, but a battle cry for life. Whether it's teaching a Kamper a new skill or serving behind the scenes in the kitchen, our staff is committed to laying down their life so that kids would see Jesus in action. Our staff is committed to serving kids and families for the glory of God.

    One Staff.  One Heartbeat.  One Purpose.  One Mission!
