Advanced Christian Retreat Ministry Application

    Thank you for your interest in Fort Caswell's Advanced Christian Retreat Ministry Internship

    For many, going to camp or to a Christian retreat center is a peaceful escape from the pressures of the outside world. For other people, these special places may be where they are called to serve as employees and build their careers. If you feel like you've had that call to serve at a Christian camp or retreat center - or even if you just want to explore it further as an option - a season at Fort Caswell as an intern can build your experience and broaden your horizons. The Advanced Cristian Retreat Ministry Internship challenges participants by requiring them to coordinate and lead the standard C.R.M. interns while contributing meaningfully to programing goals and the spiritual development of C.R.M. interns. It is the aim of our internship program to give you the references and work experience you'll need to go to any Camp and Conference center and submit an application with confidence.

    Our internships are for one year, and they begin either in January or August.

    Our internships are paid and housing, utilities, internet, and many meals are included as well.

    If you are interested in learning more you may call (910) 278-9501 and ask to speak with Karissa Weir.

    The application form must be filled out online below, but prospective interns will be called in for an interview if they are under consideration.

    Steps to the application process:
    1. Fill out and submit this application.

    2. If you have never worked on our staff before, send your references to the following link: Online Reference Form, where they may fill out your reference online. New intern applications will not be processed until all references have been received. If you are a prior staffer, you do not need to fill out references.
