Immerse yourself

3E is an intensive internship at the Youth Farm Bible Camp. The program is designed to train young adults (age 18-25) in spiritual maturity and be equipped with industry-recognized leadership skills to lead in all aspects of camping and through this to demonstrate, share, and shine the love of Jesus on lives.


Hands On Experience


Summer Camp

During the summer months, each intern will be an integral part of the camp program and will be assigned a different leadership role. These could change from week to week and will depend on the specific skills of the intern and the needs of the Youth Farm Bible Camp summer staff and camp program.  


Corn Maze

Each intern will be participating in hands-on service during the Corn Maze and retreat season (September-October) to expose them to every area of camp ministry such as, food service, housekeeping, program design, program implementation, marketing, guest services, facilitation of activities, event planning, and much more.

During our quieter months each intern will participate in tasks that will expose them to the areas of  administration, maintenance, animal care, promotions, design, fundraising, and all the day-to-day tasks required to run a camp ministry. 

Interns will be trained and equipped for all aspects of work and ministry

Interns journal about their experiences and faith journey over the course of the year through devotionals and monthly reviews. A review assignment will be submitted before you start so you can see the growth you have experienced as a disciple of Jesus! Interns will participate in Bible studies, book studies, and one on one spiritual direction and mentoring which will play key roles in maturing personally and in their faith.


Personal & Spiritual Development

Reading List

During the course of the internship the interns will work through a required set of books and will be responsible for submitting a report and participating in discussions for each reading. The books will be provided by YFBC with the option of purchasing any of the books after completing them.

Equip: Spiritual Formation

“The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors, and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ. We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro and blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people’s trickery, by their craftiness in deceitful scheming. But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love”.

(Ephesians 4:12-16)

Empower: Leadership

"It will not be so among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave, just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many”.

(Matthew 20:25-28)

Extend Christ's Ministry: Missions

“So, if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us”.

(2 Corinthians 5:17-19)

YFBC Interns are paid employees for six months of the year (September, October and May-August). From November-April is when training, retreats, impact trips, and education takes place. During these six months, YFBC will provide housing (with your own kitchen) and a stipend to pay for your food costs.

In order to fund the remaining 6 months and the trips that will take place the interns will be required to fundraise around $7000. The interns will be trained, guided and encouraged throughout the year in order help them successfully raise the funds through a variety of strategies. At the end of the year the interns will be confident and equipped for all future fundraising opportunities.
