   Summer Interns at Washington Family Ranch play a vital role in our summer camping ministry.  Our interns are committed to Christ first and foremost.  They also have the ability to lead others, serve with excellence, and a desire to be challenged and grow in their relationship with Christ.

   Summer Interns will join the team of year-long interns, and together strive to serve Christ, kids, and each other.  They will also have the opportunity to grow as leaders in ministry, develop Christ-like relationships, and enjoy the fun and beauty of Washington Family Ranch.


Live in community, serve with faith!
