Join our Summer Missionary Team!
The Bambi Lake Summer Internship exists to provide an opportunity for ministry minded individuals to glorify God through serving others.

More importantly you will have the opportunity to be a witness for Christ to those that come to Bambi Lake. You will grow in your knowledge and spiritual walk with Christ through a weekly Bible Study and personal discipleship with the team leader. You will walk away with an experience that will further shape your God given gifts and talents in order to use them for God’s intended purposes.

Summer Interns FAQ
What do Summer Interns do?
Interns will serve guests at Bambi Lake by assisting on the waterfront, in the cafeteria, helping with housekeeping and cleaning, as well as other duties as assigned by Bambi supervisors. They might help with landscaping, maintenance projects, work in the snack shop, and lead and resource activities. Although there are many daily tasks that must be done and projects that are ongoing, the Bambi Lake staff will endeavor to place interns in areas of service according to interests and giftedness to help them develop skills and experience that will assist them in their career path.
Do Summer Interns lead conferences or work with children?
Interns will be serving others as a ministry and may be asked to assist in leading small group activities. They will be in contact with children and youth during meals, while working in the snack shop, during recreation times and possibly during event free times. They must be able to observe children and keep their safety in mind. Interns will have permission to intervene with an attitude of patience and kindness if they observe a young guest disobeying rules, damaging Bambi resources, or endangering their own safety or that of another guest.
Can I go home to visit my family on the weekends? Can they come visit me?
Summer events are scheduled for both weekdays and weekends. Please consult the camp director for these requests.
How much do I get paid?
Summer interns receive $150 for every week of service. Realizing that housing and meals are covered adds value to the amount of pay.
What about meals?
Interns have their meals covered during and after events in the dining room. When interns are off-campus with the Bambi staff, meals will be purchased for them. Interns are responsible for buying their own snacks and treats from the snack shop or other items.
Where will I go to Church?
We believe spiritual growth is a critical component of the interns program. The staff at Bambi Lake will invite the interns to worship at the churches where they attend. However, they also may be asked to share or speak at other churches occasionally to help promote Bambi Lake.
Can I Drive my Car? Does Bambi Lake provide vehicles for Summer Missionaries to use?
If you have a valid Michigan driver's license and your own vehicle, you can bring it and drive it. Only Bambi Lake staff are allowed to drive Bambi's vehicles.
