Shiktehawk carefully and prayerfully selects the most enthusiastic teens and young adults to serve at Camp.
The staff want to make Camp just as much fun as they had growing up going as campers! We have a high standard of who we hire. Applicants go through interviews, reference checks, and extensive training before the summer starts.
Our staff forms a close-knit community with a common goal: share God’s love in word and deed to people of all ages that come to Shiktehawk.
