"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Mark Twain

Intern Testimonials

  • “The Homewood Internship for me was such an amazing privilege and blessing. I got to serve God with my skills doing maintenance, as well as experiencing and building into community, learning lots about the bible, and seeing what it is like to just serve. With all the trips, the new friends I made, and the amount I grew as a Christian, I would encourage every young person to consider doing some sort of ministry internship and see how God could change your life!” Reign Scales, Maintenance Intern 2018
  • “I feel the internship was different for me than for most. It was when I joined the Internship that I realized spiritually I had hit rock bottom. I was challenged throughout my time at Homewood and within those challenges I started to find my way back to Jesus, restoring and strengthening the relationship I have with Him. Throughout my intern year there was a lot of self discovery which gave me areas to work on within myself resulting in a stronger, healthier me.” Becca Bieri, Office Intern 2017
  • “I came into the internship hoping to grow in my relationship with God and build strong friendships in the process. However, it wasn’t as straightforward as I had planned. A couple things I realized during the program were that individually I had areas to work on as well as, my faith wasn’t where I wanted it to be and I had been frustrated with Him. I formed incredible relationships and with their support I grew stronger as a person and in my relationship with God. I finished the internship a very different person and in the process learned valuable leadership skills such as, communication, organization and even a bit of maintenance.” Kyrianna Reimer, Program Intern 2018
  • "I worked at Camp Homewood as a hostess/housekeeping intern and I really enjoyed my time while there! For me, community is so important and you definitely get a fantastic community around you as you get to know the other interns and the year round staff. I really appreciated the different things that were implemented to help us grow, things like having a mentor assigned to you, having worship nights, speakers and morning devotions. The scenery out on Quadra island is absolutely amazing. I have so many fun memories at Camp Homewood." Amy Schmalz, Housekeeping Intern 2019
