Servant in Training Program

What is a SIT?

The Servant in Training (SIT) program is designed for 15-18 year olds to serve at camp and gain an understanding of the various staff roles involved in running the summer program.

What does a SIT do?

SITs are paired with a counsellor and stay in a cabin with a group of kids for one or two weeks in a summer.  SITs spend a portion of each day in various staff roles: program, maintenance, housekeeping and food servies.  This program is a tremendous opportunity to develop a youth's leadership skills, service, and faith.

Do SITs go through any training?

We have a SIT training day in June to help prepare you to be a SIT.  The date will be announced in the spring, but usually takes place on a Saturday in Saskatoon.  Youth interested in becoming a SIT are encouraged to first participate in our Youth Leadership Training Camp. 

How do I apply?

Download the appropriate application form and return it to Kinasao by May 15. 



What's next?

After you apply, 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 you.

Adult Volunteers

We need your help! Adult volunteers are asked to spend a minimum of 4 hours per day in service in return for meals and lodging. 

You may volunteer at any time during the year by contacting the camp office to find out what current projects need assistance.  We are busy all year long, and extra hands are always appreciated!

All volunteers need to have a Police Record Check on file at the camp.
