Servant in training program

What is a SIT?

The Servant in Training (SIT) program is designed for 15-18 year olds, and allows them to serve God at camp and learn what being on summer staff is all about! Participants in the SIT program will spend 2-4 weeks growing in faith, developing leadership skills, and sharing God's love with campers.

What does a SIT do?

SITs are required to commit a minimum of two weeks (not necessarily consecutive weeks), during which they will spend at least one week as part of our program team, and at least one week as part of our support team.

Program team: focused on the camp program, including planning and leading camp activities and supporting campers. SITs on program team are paired with a counsellor and stay in a cabin with a group of campers for that week.

Support team: responsible for all the behind-the-scenes tasks that keep camp running.

  • Maintenance: keep camp looking and working great! Mow lawns, help fix things around camp, and much more. 
  • Housekeeping: keep camp clean and welcoming! Work with our housekeeper to clean the camp, do camp laundry, and much more.
  • Kitchen: keep everyone well-fed and happy! Work with the kitchen staff to prepare delicious food and keep the kitchen clean.

Do SITs receive any training?

We have a SIT training day in June to help prepare SITs for the summer ahead. The training will take place on a Sunday afternoon in Saskatoon, and the date will be announced in the spring. Anyone interested in becoming a SIT is encouraged to also participate in our Youth Leadership Training camp during the summer.


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 send 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.

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.
