Our Internship Department has a full time staff that is specifically devoted to your vocational development and spiritual growth.

We help with resume writing, interviewing tips, and social media presence. Our goal is to not "use you" for 12 months and then say goodbye, but we desire to walk alone side of you for the long haul. Our Internship Department will continue to be a resource for you long after your time here at CRISTA Camps is over.

The 12 month paid CRISTA Camps intern program is designed for people who are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and desire to learn about creating and providing an environment where staff, volunteers, and guests can experience Christ.

2023/2024 Applications are now being accepted for our September start.

We believe this will be a life-changing experience where each intern will grow spiritually, personally, relationally, and professionally! You will come away more energized, trained and prepared for a lifetime of service. This is an action-oriented Vocational Internship, providing opportunities to develop servant leadership skills that will transfer to any future business, leadership or ministry opportunity.

CRISTA Camps is committed to making the year-round internship both challenging and rewarding. Much will be asked of you and much will be invested into you as we serve Christ in a community of believers.

Interns will be involved in Bible studies, small groups, worship, sharing and fellowship, all while living and practicing servant leadership at our two camp properties. Interns must be willing to commit to all aspects of the program which will focus on Christ, discipleship, community and career.
