STAFF

This is the summer job for you

"What started off as a once in a lifetime summer job experience quickly turned into my second home.  I couldn't imagine spending my summers anywhere else."

-Becca Hay

Kamp Staff

We are looking for enthusiastic, fun-loving, and caring counselors to lead our kampers. We’re looking for YOU! 

 

In everyday situations, counselors model  integrity and service by helping, encouraging, and inspiring kampers to grow in character.

Kamp Kiwanis is one of the few summer jobs where you can help shape a child’s life - mentoring them and participating in their lives in a meaningful way.

 

You will live in the cabin with the kids, start your day with them, eat meals with them, lead and participate in their activities, play games with them — it’s a full day!

This summer, you can expect to work hard, play harder, build friendships that will last a lifetime, and want to come back to do it all again!
