In addition to the focus upon holistic personal and spiritual growth through the Core Internship program, interns with a concentration in camp programming will engage many programs throughout the year. An intern's interests and aptitudes as well as the needs of the Camp are taken into consideration in formulating the level of involvement with various programs.

Typically, all interns will support The Lights of Christmas, weekend retreats, Outdoor Education, and summer camps. In approaching summer, an intern may focus their leadership specifically on one of the following: Special Friends Camp, W-Bar-B Ranch Camps (Junior and Junior High), Korean Mission Camps, or Family Camp.  For those with an environmental science and outdoor education interest, an internship will be directed more toward outdoor programming, conservation, habitat management, and sustainable practices.
