Welcome Our Year Long Interns!

By September 26, 2019 Uncategorized

We have an announcement! Typically Camp Daniel takes on one or two year-long interns, but this year we have FIVE! Meet Zechariah, Terrence, Dylan, Jordan and Dillon. Year-long interns get to experience what being a missionary to a subculture is like. They will learn about non-profit work, disability ministry, youth ministry, construction, managing a home and living in a community. They will live and work with the residents of the Hartley House. Everyday they work in construction, learning as they go, and in the evenings and weekends they are involved in The Able Church, Special Olympics, a bible study group for people with disabilities and The Hub Student Ministry. To say the least they will be very busy!

The missionary aspect of being a year-long intern is a large part of an intern’s experience and growth during their year. All the staff at Camp Daniel are full time missionaries to people with disabilities, and like most missionaries, They will all need to raise $600 in monthly financial support to pay rent, food, transportation, and other living expenses. If you are interested in donating to them visit their links at the bottom of the page. 

We are so thankful to have our staff grow during this season of construction, transition and change. Right when when we thought there is no way we could finish the campus by the summer of 2020 five young men stepped up and committed their year to Camp Daniel. That is a miracle in and of itself. We are so excited to see what God has planned for them over the next year. And if you see them around make sure to encourage them as this year will be full of hard work!

 

“Being involved at Camp Daniel has pushed me beyond my limits, allowing me to grow as a leader and in my relationship with God. I know this year will be a good opportunity for me to work on myself, grow up a little more, and teach me to shine brighter, all while helping others to do the same….”
