Quotes from Past Interns....
From the second we got here we've been included in whatever is going on around camp. The full-time staff has been great at making us feel at home. The experience has given me a great look at how a property is run. Each department has its own job and for the camp to work right, everyone has to do his or her part. There is no room for selfishness. If I'm thinking only about myself, then I can't get my job done because it involves so many other people. I have spent a good amount of time with full-time staff just enjoying their wisdom in different areas. Each person brings something different to the table and I'm hoping to dig into those things throughout the year. Overall, my internship has been so much more than I expected. I'm learning a ton about God's will in my life and how He calls us to abide in Him. My role is not to 'do' things for God, but to present to him the things that are already in my life. I think I've spent most of my years as a believer trying to figure out what God's will for my life is and the whole time it has been the same...abide. - Taylor Gooley 
Looking back on my internship experience I realize that it has molded me into who I am now, because I allowed the Lord to break me.
I learned to choose joy daily, this being one of the biggest things that I learned. You are in a place where some of the jobs you will be doing are not always glamorous and it is easy to let Satan get his foothold in that. But being able to wake up and choose Christ and joy daily is a blessing beyond belief. - Mike Rudder
The Lord has taught me a ton this year about vulnerability and creating a space for Jesus in both work and relationship- Catherine King
