Camp Kadesh Staff Are Awesome

Summer Employment

Our deadline for general applications has passed.  We welcome people to still apply for positions that have openings.  For 2018 we will start our hiring process for lead positions in December and all other positions in January.  

See notes on positions below for positions we are still seeking applicants

Camp Kadesh is looking for the staff of 2017.  If you are a person that is in love with the ministry of summer camp and understand how it can change the world... we are looking for you.  The following is a breakdown of the various roles that we have.  If you are new to Kadesh or just have questions feel free to contact either of our Directors Tim or Chris and we would love to talk to you about a summer at Camp Kadesh.

*First round deadlines may be extended if positions are not filled.  Interviews will begin after that posted date and preference will be given to applications submitted before the deadline.  Positions that are filled will be noted on this page.

** Indicated roles are listed as 2 month term, but have the opportunity to be combined with our Outdoor Recreation Program positions to create a 4 month opportunity for those looking for employment from May to August.
