Application Process

To be considered for a summer staff at Kanakuk, an applicant must complete an online application and personal interview with one of our Kamp Directors.

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 campus, then we will review your complete application and work to set up a phone/video interview with you.
