Curious about the details?
Are you ready for an adventure? Are you ready to spend your summer on Holy Ground? There is absolutely no life like camp life. If you come to work for us, you’ll find out why. Our internship program has been growing and changing for over 20 years. We hope that this summer will be the best one yet. Past interns have gone on to be pastors, missionaries, social workers, regional ministers, camp directors and counselors, leaders in the General Church, CCC full-time employees, gifted congregational lay leaders, and more. We promise to help make you the best leader you can be so that you can go on and do the amazing things God is dreaming up for you. Are you up for the challenge?
At its foundation, our summer internship is about service and it’s about you. It’s about service because there are long hours and hard work involved in camping ministry. Interns will try to live out the servant leadership that we see modeled by Jesus in the Gospels. It is an amazing opportunity for those who feel called to do so to put the needs of others before their own. It’s also about you because it is our goal that our summer interns work hard, play hard and have time for their own spiritual growth. All summer you will have the opportunity to participate in devotionals and prayer with your fellow interns, be part of a weekly Bible study and leadership conversations with gifted leaders around the denomination, and have the option to attend campfire and worship with our groups. We hope you will decide to join us on this adventure.
Here are a few details about the job:
You will be paid $4,000 (for the full summer); room and board included.
Our work begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, May 28, 2024. Limited time off can be worked out in advance.
We hope all interns can stay until August 9, 2024 but your end date is flexible.
Most weeks you will be off after clean up on Saturday until Sunday evening
You will occasionally be on call to assist directors with evening programming and/or worship.
You will also work one weekend camp (Grand Camp or Family Camp).
It takes a lot to run a camp, including: grounds upkeep, maintenance, kitchen work, registration paperwork, plus the typical fun and games associated with camp. You will be involved in every aspect of our ministry and have the opportunity to learn new skills. You name it and we’ll teach you how to do it.
You will have many opportunities for your own spiritual growth, including: conversations with mentors, prayer groups, Bible study, worship and more.
