Summer Internships at Southwind

Summer Interns play a vital role in our summer camping ministry. Our interns are committed to Christ first and foremost. They also have the ability to lead others, serve with excellence and have a desire to be challenged and grow in their relationship with Christ. Summer Interns will strive to serve Christ, kids and each other. They will also have the opportunity to grow as leaders in ministry, develop Christ-like relationships and enjoy the fun and beauty of camp. The estimated arrival and departure dates are May 14-August 7, although these dates could change as we track the country's progress in mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
