We are offering a 2-week internship where you will be a part of a meaningful ministry and help effect real change for campers and staff at Camp Horizon. Our junior counselors will get hands-on experience in the camp counselor life. This internship is designed to be a follow up to our Counselor in Training program, although it is not a requirement to have been through that program to be an intern.  

Junior Counselors will spend two weeks with us. One week will be spent as program support. This time will be in the kitchen helping with prep and clean-up work, doing the dishes at each meal, water flowers around the camp, helping to set up and tear down from activities throughout the camp. This week you will be given a room and a roommate in Renewal and may be called out any time to be in assistance to the Camp Counselors and full time staff. The other week you are here will be spent as an Assistant Counselor. You will stay in the cabins with the campers, you will lead at least one Bible Study, assist or lead a choice time activity and spend your time investing in the spiritual lives of the campers that week.

As part of your two-week internship you will be in a leadership training that meets daily. This will give you some education and techniques to go along with your hands on training. This will also be the part of your day where you get to be with the other interns and not responsible for anything else.


  • Room and board provided
  • Camp T-shirts Provided

This two-week commitment will include staying at camp for one weekend. During that weekend you will rest and hang out with the summer staff.
