Come join the KCC family!
KCC experiences allow staff to learn and develop skills that will enhance job marketability while fortifying excellent management and personnel skills. Hot summer days, continuous schedules, campers pushing limits and high expectations of following camp policies and protocols are just the beginning of KCC culture; however, all of this is nothing compared to the benefits one realizes after the summer has faded. Special bonds with campers and staff alike are the key to what makes KCC a special place that gives back to its staff and participants!
Kids & Culture Camp has a limited number of Counselor-in-Training positions available.
The purpose of Kids and Culture’s Counselors-in-Training program is to provide children ages 13-17 an opportunity to further develop their leadership skills by providing assistance to KCC staffers and campers. CIT participants will gain real life experience by mentoring campers, developing the personal, professional, and technical skills necessary to become an effective youth worker, while being immersed in cultures from around the globe!
- Work with experienced KCC instructors to help CIT develop into positive mentors.
- Participate in team-building and problem solving exercises (both real and hypothetical).
- Develop appropriate communication skills and proper work etiquette in a fast-paced educational environment.
- Sessions with KCC Directors regarding how to start, run, and maintain a successful business.
