Intern Staff:

The internship program at Covenant Point is designed to provide young adults with 1) supervised practical experience and training in all facets of camping ministry, 2) exploration and discernment of one’s sense of vocation, and 3) experience living in a small, Christian community. Interns provide Covenant Point with critical staffing support in all areas of our operations; sensitivity and special interest is given to allowing the intern to craft the emphases of their experience based on gifts and interests. Our aim is to help women and men grow as disciples of Jesus Christ through a shared rhythm of work, worship, hospitality, adventure, ministry, training, reflection, and mentoring. Typically, internships begin in September and conclude the following September. Contact Executive Director, Erik Strom, at erik@cpbc.com if you’d like to learn more. Application can be made by submitting a resume and cover letter.
