What is a KC?


What is a KC?

The KCs (Kid's Counselors) 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’re hard-working, will always return a wallet you find, a positive role model, fun-loving, full of endless amounts of energy, don’t mind being completely embarrassed, understand what true responsibility is, know when to turn your cell phone off, always remember to tell your mother you love her, hate to lose but are a good sport when you do, will stop and help someone in need, like making a positive impact on younger kids, desire to grow in your own faith, don’t blame others for your problems, sing in the shower, and believe that you can make a difference in the lives of kids, then by all means, fill out our application – we want you!

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