Camp Wakonda Staff



Each and every summer, we hire an incredible staff team that is assembled to conduct summer evangelism at Camp Wakonda. Our staff start off as employees, and coworkers but leave as a family! A family that Loves Jesus and will always remember their time at Wakonda!

Being a staff member isn't easy, by any stretch of the imagination. You'll work hard and sleep little. But when the summer is over, you'll want to come back.

The friends you make as a staff member are the type you'll never make anywhere else. They're the type of friends that have your back no matter what, and who are always there to support you. 

Plus, we have a lot of fun. I mean, it's camp! What'd you expect?

Most importantly, though, as a family, we all seek Jesus together. Camp Wakonda's staff mission is: “Your Part, Gods Power, Change the World!”

We believe that the most effective way we can show the love of Jesus is if we're in touch with it ourselves, and are living examples of a daily walk with Him. In addition, we show the unconditional love of Christ to every camper that steps onto our campus, and allow God to use us as we change the world for the young people that we meet!

Come work at camp to be challenged, to laugh, to work hard, to serve God, and to make friendships that will stretch into eternity!
