Our co-ed, residential camp is nestled along the shores of beautiful Kenai Lake near Cooper Landing where the scenery blends rustic Alaskan wilderness with updated facilities. Our camp has a unique mix of traditional and specialty camp programs for youth age 6-17, including camps with accommodations for children with family, behavioral, or medical challenges.
What we do: Primary duties are to foster positive youth development in a community of caring adults and peers through skill development and leadership opportunities in the outdoors. Age-appropriate programs include overnight campouts, campfires with stories, skits, songs and games, outdoor cooking, evening programs, nature and survival, target sports (archery, riflery, atl-atls, blowguns), group, teambuilding and field games, arts and crafts, drama, swimming, boating, hiking, and off-camp trips rafting and horseback riding. Special opportunities to become a “Polar Bear,” be a “Book Worm,” or “Crazy Utensil Dinner” provide new surprises each week.
Who we need: A successful staff member at Camp K exhibits a positive attitude, flexibility, and a willingness to provide a high quality of customer service to campers, fellow staff, parents, visitors, community members, and user groups. Experience in outdoor pursuits, such as camping and hiking is helpful, but more important is a willingness to learn and lead these activities with positivity throughout all types of weather! We reside in a close, residential community where you will be expected to act as a positive role model with professionalism throughout your stay, and to sacrifice some personal privacy and comforts through shared sleeping, shower, and eating facilities.
