HEAR FROM PAST STAFF!

Kids Connection has provided me with opportunities to build leadership, problem solving and planning skills. It’s a great job as a full time student, allowing me to earn an income without compromising my academic schedule. I’ve created lasting relationships with staff and children that I know I wouldn’t get anywhere else!
Matt | Activity Specialist

Working in the Youth and Teen department has been such a welcoming and valuable learning experience for me. I have really enjoyed working in an environment that has granted me so much creative freedom and support. JCamps, and now Kids Connection, is the perfect job for not only developing essential skills, but for making fulfilling and enriching relationships. Being here will undoubtedly grant you the opportunity to make lifelong memories. It feels great to be part of a team that you enjoy being in and makes lifelong impacts on our children!
