STAND Program - Age 16-18+
Serving, Training, and Now, Doing
STANDs serve as assistant cabin leaders. These volunteers are paired
with a Summer Team Member for the entire week. They live, lead, and work
with their Cabin group. STANDs have the opportunity to grow as leaders,
learn to support campers, practice servanthood, lead devotions and
activities, and be a part of the Kuriakos Community.
Serving, Training, Achieving, Nourishing, Developing are the five focuses of
the STAND program. The STANDs are both recipients and providers of these
focuses, learning from the LIT Coordinator in their daily sessions, and giving
back to the campers as they lead.
STANDs must be 16 years old and completed grade 11. While the STAND program is oriented towards 16-18 year olds, older applicants are welcome.
All STANDs will be required to attend our
Training Weekend, May 22-24, where they will learn from and alongside members of the
First Time STANDs (who have never been a SIT) are required to attend our one week Leaders In Training (LIT)
Camp (see above). Returning STANDs are encouraged to attend as well.
