It takes many volunteers working alongside paid staff to make our summer camp program possible. The Outdoor Ministries Team led by Belinda Amend, Belmont Boulevard CC, Salina, is looking for volunteers to make the 2022 season the best one yet.
Tawakoni is committed to ensuring all children and youth who attend our 2022 Summer Camp Programs have a fun and safe time. Following the CCK Child Protection Policy, ALL volunteers (maintenance workers, nurses, directors, chaplains, and counselors) and staff working at camp this summer will need to turn in a Volunteer Application Form and have a background check on file.
All paid and volunteer staff will be expected to be a good example of Christian faith and follow all COVID safety protocols as advised by the Camp Manager and Outdoor Ministries Team.
We are looking for maintenance volunteers to serve by doing minor maintenance around the property. Tasks may include mowing, tree trimming, minor repair work, weeding, and more.
In addition to spending time surrounded by God’s spirit at Tawakoni, food, lodging, and a camp staff t-shirt are also provided.
For more information, email Vern Failor or call 785-231-3960.
We are looking for medical professionals to serve as camp nurses. Ideally, we’d like someone each week who can distribute camper medications and administer general first aid.
In addition to spending time surrounded by God’s spirit at Tawakoni, food, lodging, a camp staff t-shirt, and a small stipend is also provided.

Summer Leadership Interns:
We are looking for college students with a heart for ministry to serve as summer leadership interns. Camp interns serve in multiple roles throughout the summer including lifeguards, challenge course facilitators, and group games leaders. Interns have also been known to step in and help directors as counselors and musicians.
This is a paid internship. The internship begins with a one-week training and trial period May 23-27 and concludes with the Disciples Connect and Equip Regional Assembly on August 6.

We are seeking creative, flexible, and passionate individuals to serve as camp directors. Directors oversee the development of the camp program session and provide leadership for campers and staff.
Using the provided curriculum, they determine games or activities in consultation with the Camp Manager, recruit and teach counselors their responsibilities during, and perform administrative tasks that keep the camp program going.
We are seeking pastors to serve as camp chaplains. Chaplains assist directors with various program needs and provide spiritual leadership for campers and staff through regular worship, small group and one on one interaction, and by being present during program activities.
Chaplains are full participating ministers at camp who spend time with the kids and bring their creative approach to worship and bible study, rooted in the Disciples of Christ tradition.
