ARE YOU IN COLLEGE? DO YOU LIKE WORKING WITH KIDS? DO YOU HAVE A HEART FOR MINISTRY IN NYC? ARE YOU READY TO HAVE THE BEST SUMMER YET?

If you answered yes to all, some, or even one (well… maybe two) of those questions, read on! As an intern for A House on Beekman your primary role will be with our summer camp. Camp consists of 60 children and is split into 6 different groups divided up according to age.

The age groups run from our graduated pre-schoolers through 5th grade and the intern’s job is to be the group leader for one of these groups the whole summer. Your daily routine will be to guide the groups to different activities throughout the day.

Each week a new set of mission teams will come to assist with the different activities and will act as support for you and your group. The camp day will start at 9:00am and end at 4:00pm M-F. The main job of the interns is to consistently and sacrificially love the children of our neighborhood.

We will specifically be hiring for a Middle School Intern, in addition to the Interns we hire for elementary-aged camp. If you'd be interested in applying for this position, click here for the job description and then indicate "Middle School" on your application!
