CAM offers student summer internships in order to introduce young people to the world of ministry and service, and to build interest in CAM among young people- especially young people who attend our member churches.
Our internships are appropriate for students ages 15 and up. While most of our former interns have been high school students, college students also benefit from the experience and offer CAM an excellent level of service.
Interns are asked to serve at least 10 shifts (half day each) and work in all the areas of our operation. The ten shifts may be scheduled (this is not a drop in thing) anytime over the course of the summer as long as the intern is dependable. Some interns use their talents and influence to do special projects for CAM. In addition to serving clients, we ask interns to be reliable and polite, check in weekly, give a tour, invite a group, and tell their church about CAM and the internship experience.
