Servant in training program

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! 

How do I apply?

Download an application form and return it to Kinasao by email or mail by May 15. 



Applications will be available by January 15, 2023. 

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 if you are 16+.

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.
