Pine Cove understands college is a time when students are thinking about their upcoming careers and ways they can achieve their goals. We want to do our part to develop our staff and help them utilize their time at Pine Cove to make a real impact on their futures. From on-site internships to summer staff positions and potential college credit, we’re committed to equip and launch our staff into the futures that God has for them.
Many of our current summer staff positions at camp are dedicated internships designed to fulfill the standard college internships requirements. Plus, you get paid! Additionally, many counselors and program staffers can get college credit for their roles on staff at Pine Cove. It's an amazing opportunity for hands-on learning in a fun environment. Our interns have the opportunity to learn from one-on-one mentorships with our leadership staff.
“Looking back I was becoming someone at camp. No matter what job you are doing at Pine Cove, everything was developing character, and that’s really going to prepare you well for the next season of life… whatever that might be.”
Global Missions Director, Dallas Baptist University
Our aim is that God would use this place to prepare college students not simply for a summer of great ministry, but for a lifetime of faithfully living out their calling. It is a holistic, Gospel-centered transformation that develops our staff spiritually, personally, and professionally for a lifetime.
Most people don’t think of spending the summer at camp as an activity that could help them professionally. Conventional wisdom tells us that the mastery of science, technology, engineering, math and other “hard skills” are the key to professional accomplishment.
The encouraging thing about being at camp is that it teaches a variety of qualities that are almost never taught at your typical summer internship.
“Camp taught me how to cultivate environments that are “seriously fun” which has helped me to build a healthy and joyful work culture.”
