Site Director: Jimmy Landrum
Jimmy has been involved with Camp Alkulana since the 1990s. He spent his career as a fire fighter in Beaumont, Texas and volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America. In 2008, he took on the job of Site Director, helping to care for the camp’s facilities and host retreats throughout the year. Jimmy has training and decades of experience in rock climbing and rappelling, caving, canoeing, and lifeguarding, and therefore provides program leadership and training in these crucial areas of our camp program.
Every summer we hire 40-50 people to work in some capacity with our summer program as cooks, nurses, craft leaders, and camp counselors. All staff members are experienced in their field, receive background checks, and are trained for the positions they fill at Camp Alkulana. Learn more about summer staff opportunities.
