Program Staff Team

All our staff are at least a year out of high-school, and participate in two weeks of staff training before beginning programming. They are trained according to Alberta Camping Association standards, and are given the skills they need to care for campers of all ages. We are very proud of our team, and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about their qualifications.

FUEL Internship

“I came to Kuriakos with no idea what I was getting into, but I found so much more than I could have imagined.  I have experienced incredible community here: from strong mentors as well as my fellow interns, I have learned so much that I will use in future outdoor ministry positions and anywhere else God takes me.”   --Katie Bode, 2012 intern

Positions available fall of 2016.
