What is a KC?

The KCs (Kids Counselor) and Teachers are the leaders of all the Family Fest camp youth programs. These camps could not happen without the incredible work and dedication of our high school and college age KCs and Teachers. As leaders you are role models for kids from newborns to 16 years. In addition, you will work together in teams to run a  fun, nurturing program that  teaches about Jesus through stories games, arts and crafts, music, etc. . .

If you are interested in making a positive impact on younger kids, as you also grow in your own faith, we would love for you to consider being a KC “Kid’s Counselor” or a Teacher at Family Fest’s Winter Weekend Family Camps in January and February.

*Teachers are selected from our college and young adult leaders.

Who Can Apply?

Winter Weekend: KC applicants for Winter Weekend must be in 9th grade or older. 9th grade students will be added if there is available space, otherwise they will stay in the 7-9 grade program. Priority will go to applicants whose families register by December 15th.

Summer Splash: KC applicants for Summer Splash must have already completed 9th grade. Priority will go to applicants who have family attending and whose family registration is in by July 1st.

The cost to be a KC is $125. If you need help with this you can contact Pete Larson regarding the Randy Willmert/Bobo Burns Memorial KC Scholarship. (Note: after over 15 years of the KC fee of $95 we have decided to increase this fee to $125. Actual cost to Family Fest to bring a KC is closer to $235)

Applying to be a KC

  1. Fill out the Summer Splash KC Application/Medical Release online
  2. If you have allergies, medical or dietary needs, fill out the Camp Allergy/Med Form.
  3. Once you have been notified of acceptance you will mail your $125 check to the Family Fest office or you can include it with your family payment if they are attending camp.

When will you be notified?

You will be notified by email regarding acceptance to the Winter Weekend KC program. The number of KCs needed will depend on how many families with kids sign up.

KC Training

There will be a very important and mandatory Sunday (late afternoon-early evening) training session about 2-3 weeks before camp. We will post the date here as soon as that information is available.  This meeting will be held at the home of Barb & Paul Harmon, 5304 Glengarry Parkway, Edina, MN.
