Welcome to the Pine Valley Apprenticeship. This is a 9-month resident discipleship program developed for college aged young men and women, designed to develop followers, and prepare leaders for a lifetime of service dedicated to serving Jesus Christ. There is also the option to finish the year as summer staff.

A small number of young men and women make the decision to set aside this time of their lives towards developing character, identity and discipline consistent with Christian leadership..

Depending on demands/schedule; an apprentice could find themselves hopping in with daily tasks related to:
• Food Service/Kitchen
• Housekeeping/ Guest Services
• Recreation
• Front Office
• Leading Games for Churches/Schools
• Coffee Shop
• Gift Shop
• Maintenance

It’s a partnership. Camp staff invests in apprentices with:
• Training
• Hands on experience
• Spiritual investment & development
• Mentorship
• Real life community living

Apprentices are equipped with:
• Experience in a variety of areas
• Work ethic that sets them apart from others
• Spiritual practices and tools to grow and nurture
• Relationship
• Practice with crucial conversations and problem solving in community

Our goals are to:
– Model and encourage the value of spiritual formation and development of an intimate relationship with Jesus.
– Cultivate and demonstrate a heart of joyfully serving our internal and external customers and guests
– Build community and friendships that last a lifetime
