Intern with a Young Life Camp!

Drew Hill December 4, 2019

Are you trying to figure out what you want to do with your life? Young Life offers a great opportunity to explore what it’s like to be on camp staff through the year-long intern program. You can read more about the intern program at the specific camps linked below.


Young Life camps are looking for people who desire to:

  • Grow in your personal relationship with Christ.
  • Gain a solid understanding of Young Life and Young Life camp staff.
  • Experience real-life elements of work at a Young Life property.
  • Contribute to your surrounding community.


  • ​Willingness to work hard and with diligence.
  • Must be seeking spiritual maturity and growth.
  • Completed at least two years of college OR are at least 20 years of age.
  • Willingness to fundraise in order to make the program possible.
  • Ability to function well in close community.
  • Seeking career development.

The most important aspect of your internship will be how your faith will be challenged, stretched and strengthened as you draw closer to Christ daily. This program will focus on providing interns with the tools for fostering this relationship with Christ primarily through learning to practice the disciplines that Jesus modeled. Interns will have regular commitments that include study, worship, prayer, fellowship and mentoring. Active engagement and participation will be necessary to make these times fruitful. There are also many opportunities to become involved in a local church, and we encourage you to do so.

On camp staff, we recognize our calling to be good stewards of all the Lord has given to enable the mission of Young Life camps. You will be asked to join in this stewardship. During your internship, you will be exposed to the practical sides of the various departments at Young Life camps. There will be many days and weeks where flexibility and adaptability are crucial as we prepare for our guests. This is more than a job; it is a commitment to a lifestyle of work, service, and humility.

Interns will live in community on multiple levels. You will be housed with other interns of the same gender, and live in close quarters with all interns. This is truly a unique opportunity and season of life to spend significant time living, working, worshiping and playing together. Together we are continually learning how to serve Christ better and how to love our neighbor as ourselves. Much of your personal growth this year will be dependent on your participation in community growth.
