Staff Assistants Summer camp in NC mountains

The SA program is described as the backbone of our staff, because our SAs are used in many capacities here at Tekoa. Staff Assistants are used flexibly throughout the camp, filling support staff positions as well as Family Group Leader positions along side Senior Staff members. Tekoa's SA program is designed to allow recent high school graduates the opportunity to:

  • Share the light of Christ with children and youth in an outdoor Christian camp atmosphere.
  • Gain experience, leading all camp programs and activities for elementary and middle school, day and resident campers
  • Work alongside and learn from a community of highly trained senior staff.
  • explore and grow Christian faith.
  • engage in Christian fellowship with fellow Tekoa staff and volunteers.

2013CITs

The CIT program is fully experiential (hands-on). As many educators know, this is one of the best avenues for learning. The design of the CIT program is very intentional about leadership experience. Each aspect of the program is designed to meet the goals listed below. After serving as a CIT volunteer, many of our CITs continue on to become leaders with their home youth groups and children ministries. Because the CIT program is a 3-week volunteer opportunity, participants are able to log over 300 volunteer hours for college applications. The CIT program is also a great way to prepare for future summers on staff at Tekoa. It is not a requirement for our senior staff to be prior CITs however; it is a natural first stepping-stone for many of our senior staff.

Tekoa's CIT program is designed to provide rising high school seniors the opportunity to:

  • share the light of Christ with children and youth in an outdoor Christian camp atmosphere.
  • gain experience, leading games and activities for campers.
  • work alongside and learn from a community of highly trained senior staff.
  • explore and grow Christian faith.
  • provide support for campers and staff throughout the summer.
  • engage in Christian fellowship with fellow CITs and Tekoa staff.

CITs are asked to make a commitment to serve one of the 3-week sessions during the summer. For 2015, the following dates are set:

Session 1: June 14-July 4 / Session 2: July 5- July 25 / Session 3: July 26- Aug 15
