Waypoint Leadership Program

Now Hiring Waypoint Interns

The Waypoint Leadership Program is a paid, year-long commitment beginning in August. Interns will get to work with multiple departments throughout camp gaining vital skills and knowledge along the way. Interns will then come together as a community after work for personal and community development. Waypoint interns can expect to have a 40-50 hour work week, with an additional 10-15 hours focusing on community and personal development. The year will be busy and difficult at times, but the skills and experiences you will gain along the way will be helpful for the rest of your life.

Waypoint: A navigational term defined as a plot point along a route or journey.  It marks a place for directional change providing you a direct route towards your goals.

As an intern in our Waypoint Leadership Program, you will be exposed to many opportunities for growth and experience in various areas of camp life. These opportunities will provide you with vital skills and knowledge which will help you along your life’s journey. Our Waypoint community is comprised of all of the interns at camp. Amidst their time here, they will get to learn, grow and lead collectively as we strive to be a place where Jesus Christ transforms lives through meaningful relationships and outdoor adventures. We have a desire for that mission to be lived out in our Waypoint Leaders through three strategic objectives: Cultivating Faith, Nurturing Community, and Forging Character.
