Camp interns serve the summer camp program in a variety of ways:
» They are trained and certified as facilitators in the Challenge Course » They monitor campfires and grill hamburgers
» They mow; wash dishes and help with food service
» Clean the swimming pool and facilities between camp sessions
» And more!
All of which make summer church camp the great experience that churches want for their young people. Besides all the background tasks, interns help lead all-camp games, fill in for counselors when needed, and are terrific role models for our campers. For all of this, they earn a modest weekly stipend and if they complete the summer, a significant scholarship toward their ongoing college education.
For this summer, one previous intern will return: Veronica Hernandez of Woodridge CC in Wichita. She was an excellent leader on last year’s Intern Team.
New interns this summer are Hannah Jeffers-Huser, Barrett Koch, and Kelsey Cobbs. Hannah is a member of Fredonia FCC and a student at Emporia State University, preparing to become a teacher. Barrett Koch of Salina FCC is also going to college at Emporia State, studying to become a school psychologist. We are excited to welcome Kelsey Cobbs of New Covenant Christian Church, Oklahoma City. Kelsey is a TCU student working on degrees in Religion, Spanish and Hispanic Studies.
This team includes great commitments to the church and to the camp experience, and we are excited to share their talent with summer campers! Intern training takes place the last week of May. Interns serve throughout the summer camp program, beginning May 27 with Post-High Conference and concluding in early August.
