What is a SIT?
A SIT is a 15-18 year old who wants to serve God by serving others! SITs must have a love for camp, willingness to grow in leadership abilities, and a desire to work with kids. SITs gain knowledge about what it takes to be a part of the Kinasao staff team, and the program is highly recommended for those who want to be on staff someday!
What does a SIT do?
SITs are asked to commit a minimum of two weeks (not necessarily consecutive), learning what it means to be a part of the Kinasao staff team, developing their leadership, all while serving God and our campers. All SITs will be paired with a counsellor and cabin group for the week. Kinasao needs SITs to help out in the areas of program, maintenance, housekeeping and kitchen - all necessary jobs when it comes to making camp run smoothly!
Program staff: focused on the camp program, including planning and leading camp activities and supporting campers.
Support staff: 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. If you're a SIT for at least two weeks, you can attend YLT for 50% off!
