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.
