Make the most of your summer through the Arizona Kids Ministries Summer Internship. As an AZ KIDS Summer Intern, you will have the opportunity to impact hundreds of kids as they encounter God at summer camps. If you want to grow in your leadership and maximize the summer months, we hope you consider investing in our three-week Summer Internship this year.
As a Summer Intern, you will have the unique opportunity to be a part of Arizona Kids Ministry leadership team who make Kids Camps possible. You will have the privilege of building relationships and connecting with all of the children's pastors, speakers, and campers from churches all over Arizona during the three weeks of kids camp at Granite Hills Retreat and Conference Center. You will be challenged as you grow in your spiritual leadership, communication skills, physical strength, and mental endurance.
The AZ KIDS Summer Internship is designed for young adults, ages 15-25, and we require a three-week commitment. Interns must submit a pastoral, parent/guardian, and non-related adult reference (included in the application).
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The Summer Internship begins with leader orientation on Saturday, June 23 as we prepare for our camp season. We will be having 3 weeks of Kids Camp this year, beginning on June 25 and ending July 20. You will be responsible for transportation to and from the campground. Interns under the age of 18 CANNOT stay on the campground Friday - Saturday night, and are responsible to coordinate their own transportation each week. For those ages 18+, you are welcome to stay on the campground over the weekend. Food will not be provided when camp is not in session.
