Immerse Discipleship & Internship Programs

Interested in using your skills and degree plan towards year-round camp ministry?

Want to grow in your leadership abilities and gain valuable work experience?

Desire a deeper relationship with God?

Purpose: The Immerse Experience at Camp of the Hills is designed to equip young adults with a deeper understanding of Christ-centered leadership through the development of professional skills, hands-on ministry opportunities, and intentional discipleship within a Christian camp environment. This occurs through behind-the-scenes work, up-front leadership opportunities, interactions with campers and guests, mentoring relationships, and working alongside Camp staff and volunteers with a shared purpose and vision.

Time Frame: Full year, 10 month, or semester long commitments (Semester commitments are only available if internship is a required credit for a university program.)

Content: There are four tracks with different experiences and expectations. Each track is designed to challenge participants spiritually, vocationally, and personally while gaining practical work and ministry experience. See descriptions of each track  below.

Financial and Lodging Arrangements: housing and utilities are provided by camp. Living stipends or salaries will be based upon individual need and track of each participant.

Application Process: Applicants must turn in application (found in the links below) which include three references and a one-page essay on why they want to join Immerse and how they could promote the mission and vision of Camp of the Hills. An interview will be scheduled and conducted by the Program Director, Drew Bowen. Application deadline is July 19th.
