Camp Intern Description
Camp of the Good Shepherd Bible camps are led by volunteer Deans (usually pastoral staff members) from CGS area churches. Our deans rely on their volunteer staff to make their camps function effectively and efficiently. Deans will select their staff of teachers, speakers, worship leaders and helpers, but they will be assisted by Camp of the Good Shepherd Interns who will be serving at all CGS graded Bible camp sessions.
CGS Interns will work with FGCI/CGS staff and deans to prepare for all of the graded camps that take place during the summer season. A CGS internship provides a great opportunity for college students or High School graduates to learn how to serve in ministry, as CGS Interns will be required to serve in a large variety of capacities during the course of the summer.
- registering campers,
- leading a family group,
- teaching a Bible class,
- performing dramas and skits,
- leading a campfire devotion, song leading,
- counseling kids,
- leading recreational activities,
- being a “Big Brother” or “Big Sister” in the dorms,
- serving in the kitchen,
- and doing other work “as needed” by the Dean.
CGS internship starts a week prior to the first camp of the season and continues through the end of the last graded Bible camp (unless special arrangements are made with FGCI/CGS staff prior to acceptance into the internship program). Our Summer Bible Camps program for this summer are from May 30 – July 20, with a break from June 23 through July 9.
College Students and High School Graduates may apply for this position. CGS Interns who complete their entire term of service will be eligible for a Love Gift from Camp of the Good Shepherd. As well as an option for CGS Interns to raise additional designated funds over and above the Love Gift.
About Camp of the Good Shepherd – Bible Camp 2023
The confusion and hopelessness of earthly pursuits, and the tastelessness of what the world has to offer is cause for young people to evaluate their purpose for living and their need for a relationship with their Creator and Savior. The writer of Psalm 42 reminds us that ONLY God can quench the thirst of a weary soul seeking a life-giving, thirst-quenching solution: “My soul is thirsty for God” (Ps. 42:2a/NLV).
At Camp of the Good Shepherd, we take seriously the need for young souls to find the thirst-quenching truth of salvation through Jesus Christ. This year’s theme is “Thirsty for God” based on Psalm 42:1,2a. We will be studying the Word of God to see how “thirsty souls” found relief and peace through God’s grace in Christ Jesus. We will be talking about life in the 21st Century, and how a relationship with Christ can fulfill the desire of the most thirsty of souls.
