The Job

We are looking for positive, hard-working support staff, who want to be part of transforming lives, to join our team this summer.  Summer at Kellogg is a ten to eleven week program during our most exciting camps.  Staff members are needed for a variety of jobs, from adventure programming, lifeguard, summer staff mentors, to behind-the-scenes help in the kitchen and housekeeping departments.  Our staff shows Christ’s love to hundreds of kids and teens each summer.

SUMMER STAFF INTERNS NEEDED – We hire around 12-16 full summer interns each year. These interns commit to living on the campground for 10+ weeks and receive a weekly stipend, based on experience and position, for their work as well as room and board provided by the camp. This year there will be 3 teams of interns: Programming Team Interns, Kitchen Team Interns & Maintenance Team Interns. Both the programming team and maintenance team will require being certified and a lengthier interview process. All interns need to be able to provide friendly greetings and responses with the KSC guests.

PROGRAMMING TEAM INTERNS – The programming team will be certified by Synergo during one of our training days. This is training and certification is mandatory for all Programming Interns. Programming Interns need to be able to demonstrate high levels of focus and attention to details. They also need to be able to give clear and concise directions to their peers, as well as, those younger and older then them. Preference is given to those who can also give public speeches well.

LIFEGUARDS – Kellogg opens its outdoor pool between May and September and is looking for dependable certified lifeguards to join our team. We love having our Lifeguards can come join our intern team and live on the campground for the 10-11 weeks. However, if you live locally and have your own transportation, you are welcome to work hourly and helps us out when our pool is open to guests. Lifeguards at Kellogg Springs are part of the Programming Team and need to hold a current lifeguard certification from a nationally recognized organization.

KITCHEN TEAM INTERNS – The kitchen team needs to be able to multitask well in a demanding fast-paced environment. This team supports the KSC Chef and Kitchen Lead to make sure meals are ready on-time for our guests and cleans up afterwards.

MAINTENANCE TEAM INTERNS – The maintenance team interns need to be able to preform basic maintenance needs without help. This would include things like changing light bulbs, unplugging toilets, fixing doorknobs and toilets. Janitorial work and yard maintenance are included in this position. The beginning of the summer will be spent doing a lot of weed-eating. An opportunity to show your abilities in these areas will take place prior to being hired.

SUMMER STAFF MENTORS – The mentor lives in the staff house with the summer staff interns for the 10-11 weeks of camps. Ideally, we have a female and male mentor each summer. The mentors lead the summer staff family in problem solving, household management, life skills, and mentorship. The mentors job is to help the summer staff interns be successful in their jobs. They are there are a support and guide.  This position comes with lots of flexibility and creativity. Please email Missy Humber at to talk about how this position might work for you!

The Community

One of the best things about working at Kellogg is the chance to build lasting relationships with each other.  We get excited about how God has called the church to be a loving community, and that is our goal for our Summer Staff. We love working hard together, relaxing together, and enjoying the camaraderie that you only find in this kind of setting. Free housing and food are part of the perks of being part of the team. Our summer staff interns and mentors live in dorm-like rooms within a staff house in the middle of camp. Life-long memories are built in our staff house and as part of our team! We’d love to have you join us this summer!
