Join Our Team!

At Camp Kindred we believe that children should be treated as we want to be treated. They should be respected, listened to, and given a great amount of trust. We work with kids to create the most incredible camp experience possible. We also work incredibly hard during the Summer. We do whatever needs to be done to make camp run - that means screaming hours of camp songs, playing 30 rounds of gaga, plunging a toilet, staying up with a camper if they are missing home, pitching in with the groundskeeping staff, and much more. We live our mission in every action with campers, staff, and parents and guardians. If this sounds like you, fill-out the interest form below or call Tom at 414-885-5560.
