Year Long Internship Program


The Clearwater Cove Year-Long Internship is a challenging and rewarding year focused on developing life-long participants in the mission of Young Life with a specific emphasis on full-time camp staff. Clearwater Cove Year-Long Interns play an integral role at camp by providing guests with exceptional service and premier facilities within an exquisite setting.
Year-Long Interns will have the opportunity to work in several areas of camp in order to get a holistic view of year-round camping operations. We will focus on personal, professional and spiritual development. Interns will also be challenged to grow in their personal relationships with Jesus, as well as focusing on learning to be an active member of Christ-centered community with other interns, camp staff, and guests.
We are seeking mature, service-oriented leaders to join in this work of creating and maintaining an inviting atmosphere for our guests. 

The Clearwater Cove Year-Long Intern program runs September-September
