Job Details

Carolina Creek - Huntsville, TX
4 Year Degree

An Internship at Carolina Creek is for someone who is all about mission. Someone who is eager to serve God while discovering and developing their gifts and exploring paths toward vocation. While you’re all about that -  we’re all about you. We’re looking for the person who doesn’t let others look down on you just because you’re young. The person who’s got talent, passion, and motivation to spare. The person who can’t wait to spend the best years of your life doing the best work of your life, learning and developing alongside some of the best leaders around. The person who is eager to serve their team, coworkers and strangers alike because serving blesses the giver, just as much- if not more than the receiver. A Carolina Creek Internship isn’t for just anyone—and that’s why we think it might be perfect for you.


The Carolina Creek Internship is designed to help young adults develop as leaders spiritually, personally, and professionally. Carolina Creek is currently seeking young adults who are excited about developing under some of the best leaders in camp ministry and working in a team environment that encourages personal and professional growth.


If you are a hard-working, driven, teachable young leader who is passionate about the mission and vision of Carolina Creek, keep reading.

Begin Date & End Date

08/13/2023 - 08/18/2024


Living Allowance

$1,110 per month



The Intern Program Participant at Carolina Creek must be a follower of Jesus Christ, still maturing and looking to grow in developing his/her faith. He/she must be fully in accord with Carolina Creek’s mission statement, statement of beliefs, and community guidelines. He/she must be committed to be an active member of the intern community, participating in all assignments directed by the Intern Director.


All Participants are required to commit to the entire twelve-month program. Summer assignments will be determined in collaboration with each Intern as their professional skills and objectives are discovered throughout the year.


While the program is intended for participants who have completed their undergraduate degree, that does not necessarily mean a four-year college. Some fields, such as culinary or media arts often have professional Associates degrees or certifications, which would qualify. In some cases, a participant is able to finish classes for their degree online while being fully engaged in the program. In other situations a participant may have equivalent experience and be a peer in life-stage and vocational pursuit without having completed a degree. Exceptions would be the purview of the Intern Committee.
