What is Camp Kamaji’s philosophy?
What are Kamaji’s campers like?
Kamaji’s campers are energetic, fun-loving, friendly and excited about new experiences. As a matter of fact, the only prerequisites first-time campers need to join Kamaji’s summertime family are the desire to have fun, the willingness to try new things and the wish to develop life-long friendships.
Our campers are the heart-and-soul of Kamaji. Without them, Kamaji would simply be a physically beautiful place; with them Kamaji is a magical place — alive and enriched with and by the presence of its campers.
Who works at Camp Kamaji?
Many of our staff return year after year. In fact, lots are former Kamaji campers! Ninety percent are college-aged or older. Our staff join us from cities not only from the United Sates but also from several other countries; countries represented in Kamaji’s 2012 staff line-ups included England, Scotland, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.
While nearly half of our staff members return summer after summer, we think it is important to include new staffers each summer who can bring their fresh, fun and creative ideas to camp to make our program even better!

How would I get to camp?
- Drive: All staff who have access to a car for the summer and live within a reasonable driving distance are encouraged to drive to camp.
- Fly: There is an airport in Bemidji (BJI), we can easily pick you up from the airport at any time. Since it is a smaller airport, tickets tend to be a bit pricier. You can also look into flying into Minneapolis (MSP) which is less expensive. Kamaji arranges a pick-up from the Minneapolis airport (typically 2 days before your contract begins).
- Bus: Megabus does run to Minneapolis (www.megabus.com) and Jefferson Bus Lines runs from Minneapolis to Cass Lake (www.jeffersonlines.com) where, again, we can easily pick you up.
Most importantly, you are not alone in making arrangements to get to camp — we are here to help!!
