make a difference in the lives of kids
CentriKid staffers are young adults with a passion for hanging out with kids and sharing Christ through everything they do!
Every staffer must complete the application process and be interviewed by a member of our office team. A great staffer has to have skills, experience, and most of all, a passion for seeing kids come to know the Lord. Our staff and their desire to invest in the lives of kids at every possible moment is our greatest asset.
Staff set examples for kids that far outlive the themes and happenings of camp, and constantly strive towards our goal to make sure that every person that leaves CentriKid has a life-changing experience with Jesus Christ.
