Purpose: The Immerse Experience at Camp of the Hills are 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 in accordance with a semester internship requirement or in accordance with online studies.)
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: All participants reside on camp property in communal or semi-communal accommodations. Program costs, financial aid, living stipends, or salaries are dependent upon the participants’ program track.
