What is a SIT?
The Servant in Training (SIT) program is
designed for 15 to 18-year-olds to serve in camping ministry and gain an
understanding of the various team roles involved in running the summer program.
This program is a tremendous opportunity to develop a youth's faith and leadership
skills while serving others.
What does a SIT do?
are required to commit a minimum of two weeks to the program (not
necessarily consecutive weeks), during which they will spend at least one week
as part of our program team, and the other week(s) as part of our support team.
program team is focused on the camp program, including planning and leading
camp activities, and supporting the needs of the campers. As part of the
program team, the SIT will be paired with a counsellor and stay in a cabin with
a group of kids for that week.
support team is responsible for all of the behind-the-scenes tasks that keep
our camp operating, including:
Maintenance - Tasks mainly include groundskeeping,
servicing camp equipment, assisting in any camp construction projects, and
looking after the maintenance requests of the program team.
Housekeeping - Tasks mainly include cleaning the
bathhouses, bathrooms, and other program areas.
Kitchen - Tasks mainly include food preparation
and cleaning kitchen equipment and utensils.
Do SITs receive any training?
We have a SIT training day in June to help
prepare SITs for the summer ahead. The date will be announced in the spring,
but the training usually takes place on a Saturday afternoon in Saskatoon. Any
youth who are interested in becoming a SIT are encouraged to first participate
in our Youth Leadership Training Camp during the summer.
How do I apply?

and return it to Kinasao by May 15.
What happens after I apply?
After you apply and are accepted, we will
confirm which weeks you are needed as a SIT. We'll also mail you a letter to
take to your local Police or RCMP station to receive a Criminal Record Check (free
of charge). This check is mandatory in order for you to be a SIT. You'll also
need to download and complete the Health Form and bring it to camp with
Contact Faith and she'll help you out!
