Creative Services- Graphics & Print Intern

Are you passionate and have an eye for detail? Do you enjoy capturing concepts into design? Carolina Creek offers a year-long program for post-grad students who are looking for a place to get hands-on experience with camp programming, guest experience, communications, creative and marketing. The Print & Design Intern will work within our Creative Services Department to produce excellent, engaging visual content for Carolina Creek Programs, marketing initiatives and other ministry projects.

 

Program Objectives

The Internship Program at Carolina Creek is designed to walk with young adult participants as they grow and mature spiritually, professionally and in community with one another. Interns will have the opportunity to develop in, as well as receive training with regards to Identity In Christ, Spiritual Formation, Discipleship, Communal Living, Leadership (Biblical, Professional, and Social) and Ministry Career Skills.

 

This is not a gap-year program but is intended to provide work experience for post-graduates who desire to explore ministry careers related to Christian camping, Christian hospitality, children's or youth ministry, culinary fields, marketing or creative media ministries. Supervisors construct an individualized curriculum for each participant that will help them accomplish their own professional goals.

 

Primary Responsibilities

Participants in the Intern Program serve on our ministry team, as needed, whenever guests are present. This includes most, but not all weekends throughout the year, as well as some midweek groups. Direct ministry assignments will vary depending upon the giftings and abilities of each individual, but all participants should expect to be deployed as needed to accomplish our mission. Assignments may include, but are not limited to:

  • Facilitate Carolina Creek adventure/recreation, aquatics, and target sports in a safe manner for all guests.

  • Lead a small group of campers in Bible Studies, activities, and other program elements for midweek and weekend programs.

  • Assist the Kitchen Staff in serving and cleaning of meals for all guest groups.

  • Assist the Guest Experience team in preparing facilities for guests, including cleaning dining halls, common areas, and cabins as well as room setup.

  • Assist the Grounds Team in maintaining & improving grounds.

  • Participate in meetings and complete assignments received by the Intern Coordinator & supervisor.

Each intern will be assigned to a specific team at Carolina Creek. They will be able to apply the leadership principles they are learning from the Intern program in their daily work at Carolina Creek. This department will be secondary to the primary responsibility of leading the program and guest groups experience.

Did you ever think God could use your talents or experience at a camp? Many of us felt the same way you feel now—we had God-given skills and a passion to serve Him, but no idea that those skills and passions could intersect right here, right now, at Carolina Creek. But God doesn’t work within our parameters. He creates opportunities we could have never imagined, but it’s up to us to embrace His plan. Where you come from matters, sure—but when you bring your skills to Carolina Creek, there’s no telling where God could take your future.

 

Within the Creative Services Department, we believe your talents aren’t just artistry. They're a ministry. As a Print & Design intern at Carolina Creek, you’ll be part of a group of creatives responsible for project management, asset distribution, filmmaking, production, content development, design, photography, social media and much more. We’re looking for someone who loves collaboration, has a passion for visual communication, and dreams of helping people experience & know the love of Jesus with their design abilities. 

 

The Basics: 

  • Visualize the entire campaign, but never lose track of a single deliverable

  • Crave feedback and hunger to grow in your design abilities as part of a collaborative team

  • Think about how to get better with each and every project

  • Understand the fundamentals of design

 

The Works: 

  • Rock-solid work ethic and a positive attitude

  • Ready to step into the entire design process, from intent to concepting, to drafting, to refinement, to final application and delivery

  • Create engaging pieces that will be at home anywhere from phone screens to billboards

  • Equally comfortable creating assets for existing campaigns or using assets from other designers

 

The Cherry on Top: 

  • You have experience in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop & InDesign

  • You understand the difference between effective design & cool design

You’re not only okay with, but expect occasional workplace shenanigans
