Overview:

The Program Aid’s primary role will be to work alongside Camp BlueSky’s Assistant Director of Programs to plan and execute each day of camp. A Program Aid will work behind the scenes to ensure that the day to day program operations of camp run smoothly. Each Program Aid will have their own primary responsibility, which can include, but is not limited to specific programs, operations, media, and administrative planning and tasks.

Our campers are multinational and Kenyan students living in Nairobi, Kenya and around East Africa. Nairobi is an extremely diverse and growing city and our campers are likely to become the national and world leaders of the future. There is a great need for them to know Christ, deepen their faith, and grow in character!
