Internships at Miracle Camp
Miracle Camp & Retreat Center’s Internship Program is designed to serve exiting high school and college students who are launching into years of obtaining skills for work or considering educational options. A “gap-year” such as this proves invaluable, especially for those who want more experience in a variety of areas, are unsure of their next steps, or want to get a taste of camp ministry. Rather than staying caught in the middle between what is now and “what’s next”, this internship exists to step in and help prepare participants for a lifetime of fruitful vocation while they work alongside the MCRC team serving groups, churches, and individuals through multiple avenues.
Centered around gospel application, this internship takes an in-depth look at servant leadership, 21st century life skills, and gives students time to discover their purpose. The gospel story gives us the adventure of a lifetime to discover, understand, and pursue the purpose we are given in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the internship is to create an environment where students will be given hands-on opportunities to discover vocational purpose while growing in Christ, gaining direction in the following areas:
1) Discovering gifts
2) Building vocational skills
3) Exploring calling & life plan
Miracle Camp has the privilege of serving guests year-round. A training and assimilation period will occur at the start of the program to acclimate students to the Miracle Camp culture and rhythm. They will serve alongside Summer Camp and assist with the variety of Guest Groups during the summer season. August – April is the “tri-season” in which the interns will serve in more specified roles and teams depending on their area of focus and skill set.
Camping is an energetic, team based, all-hours type of environment that demands fluidity for guests, specificity with staff and the challenges of being in a new environment. To prepare students for these unique and exciting challenges, we offer the following: discipleship & team-based ministry, weekly pay with set time off, and opportunities for training, certification and career advancement.
