Nine Month Internship
The Trail West Nine-Month Internship is a challenging and rewarding year focused on developing life-long participants in the mission of Young Life with a specific emphasis on full-time property staff.  Interns play an integral role in accomplishing the Trail West Lodge Mission which is that Christ be proclaimed and glorified through our partnership with guests by providing them with exceptional service and premier facilities within an exquisite setting.

Nine-Month Interns will have the opportunity to work in several areas of the property in order to get a holistic view of the property’s operations. There will be a focus on personal development of each intern’s individual gifting and talents. They will also be challenged to grow in their personal relationships with Jesus, as well as focusing on learning to be an active member of Christ-centered community with other interns, camp staff, and guests.

We are seeking mature, service-oriented leaders to join in this work of creating and maintaining an inviting atmosphere for our guests. Please see links below for the program description, application, and recommendations.

This internship runs February through October. We will be hiring 3 interns total - two in food service and one housekeeping / guest services. All interns will help in housekeeping each week.
