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 of Christ.
Each summer, the Lord uses over 2,000 dedicated, kid-loving, Christian college athletes from across the country who are committed to pouring their life out and showing 13,000 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 creating snapshots of heaven through moments of adventure, wonder, and biblical teaching.
That's our heartbeat.
There are many ways to serve at Kanakuk Kamps in the summer. However, there are several qualities that you will find at the core of all our staff.
1. Love for the Lord - Our staff loves Jesus and is dependent on Him everyday. Above all else, our staff desires to put Jesus first and live for him in both action and deed. We desire that our staff reflect the love of Christ and His name is made glorious through our lives. Without Him, we have no purpose!
2. Love for Kids - We are in the kid business. Our staff has a heart for reaching kids and building lasting relationships through sports camping. We desire to love, protect, serve, encourage, and challenge each kid who walks through the Kamp gates.
3. Love for Sports - At Kanakuk, we believe that the area of athletics is a great platform in which we can reach kids with the message of Christ. Our staff strives to provide some of the best training and coaching possible in over 25 different sports and activities. We like to be active!
4. Love for Excitement - Kanakuk is a crazy place! Kamp is filled with non-stop action and adventure. Whether its dressing up for a wild theme party or just riding down a huge zipline, our staff is fired up and going nuts every minute! The excitement never ends at Kanakuk.
5. Love for Team - Our staff is a team united under one mission. Our staff is selfless, never seeking personal gain or attention. We desire to serve and encourage one another in all that we do and say. We are all in this together and want the name of Christ to be made famous above all else.
