    I worked at Kanakuk part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The leadership at Kanakuk is awesome and the facilities are great at K1. I am very thankful for my summer here.

    Cons

    It is exhausting. A full time job, but so worth it. The Branson humidity is a little rough. Staff training week is super long.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe make staff training a little shorter. Other than that, you guys are doing a great thing serving Jesus with those kiddos!

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Kanakuk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Please do not work here.

    Cons

    I was a summer camp counselor for the Family K-Kwai camp. I was miserable the entire time and felt like I was living in a cult. This camp is extremely dogmatic, using scare tactics to push their homophobic anti science agenda. I deeply regret that I ever worked for an organization like Kanakuk.
