Are you ready to invest your life in ministry?
“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
Camp Homewood is hiring a crew of 7 people for the fall and 6 for the winter. The jobs will focus primarily on project work to improve our site & facilities as we aren’t able to host our regular guest groups. This replaces our regular 8 month internship program. Staff will work Monday-Friday in one of the following departments: Food Services, the Barn, or Site & Facilities. Intentional programming in the evening to build community will include weekly worship nights and Bible study. We are also planning to have guest speakers and a trip up to a chateau at Mt. Washington. Remuneration is $18.00 / hour x 35 hours per week.

“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
“The Homewood Internship was a challenging but rewarding experience. I came into it with minimal maintenance skills and was unsure about how much I had to offer, but through the 8 months I learned so much not only about maintenance but more importantly about myself. I gained so many practical skills working with Joel and grew spiritually and emotionally living in a community with other believers. The internship was a very impactful experience in my walk with God, and left me with life-long friends.” Chris Hedlin, Maintenance 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
“My year at Camp Homewood was filled with challenge, hard work, and relationships, with the occasional long pause for thoughts about the quiet beauty of God in my lie and the creation around me. I walked away at the end of the year with focus, a renewed drive, and a clear direction (not to mention experience in a new field that could get me jobs). More importantly though, I made life-long friendships and matured my relationship with God. I would recommend the internship to anyone that wants something new, something hard, and something worthwhile as they re-center.” Amy Barnard, Kitchen Intern 2017
