SUMMER STAFF AVAILABILITYCamp Alkulana is hiring! Join us on staff this summer! Fill out an application today. Camp Alkulana is seeking enthusiastic and creative young adults to serve as summer camp counselors for low-income, at-risk children and youth from the Richmond, Virginia area. Camp counselors are at least 18 years old, live onsite during camp sessions, and are committed to transforming the lives of Richmond’s young people. Our goal is that as campers build relationships with counselors and participate in camp activities, they will experience God’s love in a real and personal way. Camp Alkulana counselors have a generalist job description, wearing many different hats! Staff live in cabins with their campers, eat their meals together, and supervise and lead all camp activities (including Bible study, adventure activities, interest groups, and general recreation). Fill out an application on this page. The camp director will then contact you about current availability. If you have other skills you would like to offer to Alkulana — cooking, medical, crafts, maintenance, etc., please email the director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What did you learn while working at Camp Alkulana?
I feel like a better leader. I was able to see a much different side of the world. I gained self-confidence. It taught me some of the best classroom management techniques. I made life-long friendships. I really feel like I made a difference. I was pushed to the limits of my heart in how much I could love a child. I finally saw what God is calling me to do. It was the hardest and most fulfilling thing I have ever done in my life.
