Camp Kanuga is hiring for the summer!

Kanuga is hiring…and we would appreciate your help in finding the very best candidates to work with our campers and guests this summer.

Kanuga Conferences, Inc. is the largest Episcopal camp and conference center in the world. We have a variety of programs that hire college-age adults and we usually have a good fit for most that apply. Working at Kanuga is an excellent opportunity to have a relaxed and fun summer in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Over the years, we have had many former staff members find out about Kanuga through their campus ministry. Our staff comes from all over the country and we find that students who remain involved at church during their college years seem to be a great fit at Kanuga so please forward this email to the students involved in your campus ministry.

Camp Kanuga is a traditional summer camp for boys and girls ages 7-15. We offer a variety of programs including rock climbing, campouts, archery, sports, arts and crafts, Kanuga Community (Christian exploration), music, and much, much more!
