“KSS is my home away from home! The best part is that I can share my love of science and nature with kids and give them an amazing camp experience. I don't think I could find another job as personally fulfilling as this one, and I couldn't ask for a better location, or a better group of people to spend my summer with.”

– Emma Tunks, Instructor

“Sharing my passion and knowledge of diverse environments with young students and adults alike gives me hope that they may find inspiration in mother nature and begin to ask and answer critical questions that will aid in the preservation of our outdoor world.”

– Rachel Ackerman, Instructor
