As a part of the Coldwater ministry, you will be a part of a tight-knit Christian community and work as a team with others. You will have the opportunity to integrate your faith and work with God’s restorative mission for the world. You will participate in hands-on service and leadership opportunities rooted in the biblical ethic of care for self, others and place. Summer Interns will learn a strong service-ethic and gain measurable employability skills and experience. Through a focus on service, our hope is for each intern to encounter God in a fresh way, grow in appreciation for creation and see the value of the work of his or her hands.
Wilderness Leader Internship is a summer immersion opportunity for college aged leaders, focused on developing ministry capabilities as a Christian educator, mentor, and wilderness instructor. As a Wilderness Leader Intern, you will discover and experience first-hand the thrill of teaching and leading in the wilderness classroom.
Interns join our leadership team and are equipped to bring about lasting change in wilderness course participants. Students are not chosen on a “first come, first served” basis, but are selected through an application process. Selected students will have all course fees covered (with exception of Wilderness First Responder Certification) and will receive a $1500 stipend following their field experiences. There are 6 funded Intern positions.
Date: May 8 – August 8
Location: Mink Lake Wilderness Camp
