The Internship Program at Twin Rocks Friends Camp is designed to equip young adults with a deeper understanding of Christ-centered leadership through the development of professional skills, ministry preparedness, and through relevant, formational curriculum within a Christian camp environment. This occurs through behind-the-scenes work, up-front leadership opportunities, interactions with campers and guests, mentoring relationships, and working alongside an intentional community of Twin Rocks staff with a shared purpose and vision.
Being a part of Summer Staff means working hard. Summer Staff rotate regularly between various work assignments, such as washing dishes, preparing meals, working grounds, and cleaning cabins. Some staff participate by working in specialized areas like lifeguarding, archery instruction, or in the camp store. Whatever the task, Summer Staff members work together toward the common goal of developing a servant’s heart.

Camps for All Abilities
Special Needs Camps
Twin Rocks Friends Camp hosts two summertime family camps for families affected by disability.
Please consider participating in one or both of these impressive camps, or volunteering!
As host, Twin Rocks provides food, facilities, and recreation options, with programming expertise coming from each camp’s sponsoring organization: Joni & Friends International Disability Center (in June) and Jacksonville Presbyterian Church (“Camp Levi” in August).*
Family Retreats specifically focus on families navigating the challenges of disability. We value each person as an image-bearer of God and worthy of dignity and respect! We strive to create a rich, Christ-centered environment at each Family Retreat that is safe and accepting for each member of the family.
Camp Levi is a retreat where families affected by disability will be encouraged, find hope, and engage in lots of fun activities. It is where families are not just welcomed, but celebrated. And, it is a refuge of rest and peace from the daily challenges and struggles of life.
