During the Winter semester, your experiences can range seeing first hand the winding down of operations at a ski area to startup of seasonal campgrounds. A significant time at our program involves the development and execution of Adventure Programs. Beyond that, there are many routes that can be taken based on your interests. Outdoor Recreation offers instructional programs in rock climbing (actual outdoor climbing), mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, paintball, and much more. Outdoor Recreation also operates multiple swim areas, a full service campground, and assists in the execution of major special events.

The summer includes Poverty Simulation, volunteer assignments (usually in several program areas based on program need and intern interests), weekly forums to learn about urban ministry issues, book discussions, bible study, learning goals, and more!. The summer internship lasts 10 weeks (2014 tentative dates: May 28-Aug 5). Summer interns are welcome to apply to go on the Mexico City Mission Exposure Trip (usually in July – see other page on this website), with costs paid by the intern. Supervision for internships to fulfill academic requirements can also be arranged as needed throughout the calendar year. We have supervised previous interns in numerous academic disciplines, such as social work, seminary/theology/missions, community organizing, economic development, public relations, youth, child and family studies, etc. Please contact us about areas not mentioned. The majority of our academic internships take place here in Waco, however if you have a particular interest in international issues, please let us know and we’ll see what options may be available. We ask that you contribute to the cost of your internship through Mission Waco by helping fundraise donations for the Intern Program. You are encouraged to involve your local faith community in sending you to serve and grow this summer! They do this through their prayer and financial support to Mission Waco’s mission. We will work with each intern in the process of raising the money. All costs are subject to Mission Waco’s guidelines and policies and are fully discussed during the interview process. The intern program costs Mission Waco Mission World about $2000 per intern and includes: free housing, weekly “per diem” for food/misc, staff time for supervision and training, and learning experiences and materials. Interns who successfully complete the summer internship and fundraising goal are also provided some funds to attend the Christian Community Development Association conference (usually in Oct in a major U.S. city). Some internship scholarships are available from Mission Waco (based on need or as available). Some interns are sent to Mission Waco by various denominational organizations or grants that provide full or partial funding — if this is your situation, please notify us when you apply for the internship as this will fulfill the fundraising goals for your internship in most cases. The bottom line is that if we all agree that you need to be at Mission Waco this summer, then we’ll trust God to make a way!

Kalu Yala is a sustainable community that will be built in the mountains about 45 minutes outside Panama City, Panama. Kalu Yala is founded on the core tenants of culture, new urbanism architecture, organic food, wellness, recreation, education, preservation, and conservation of the natural environment. The internship program allows students and young professionals to come to Panama and gain cultural exposure, work experience, and knowledge in order to create a project that will ultimately help shape this sustainable community. We plan to break ground in May of this year which will bring many opportunities for students to work with experts in various fields. In 2013 we have a lot to be grateful for as we plan to break ground on a 42,000 square foot post-and-beam eco-resort which will host an off-the-grid event for 500 of the world's thought leaders this fall. (You read that right!) Once constructed, half the venue will be dedicated to the intern program, giving our students a true home at Kalu Yala. Internships take place in 3 venues: creating the town's foundation in Kalu Yala; creating relationships in the neighboring town of San Miguel; and working on business logistics in Panama City. Since Summer 2010, Kalu Yala has had interns from 39 states, 13 countries and 92 universities. Programs Agriculture and Animal Science Biology Business Development and Entrepreneurship Community Outreach Construction Management Education Outdoor Recreation For those focused on architecture, we have an extremely selective 5-person program starting with George Moreno and Partners. This is one of the top architecture firms in Panama, and our lead architect in partnership Moule and Polyzoides. Students accepted to this program will be working on actual projects, creating models to be critiqued by experts in the field. Kalu Yala Internships promotes a "garage entrepreneurship" model, allowing interns to create independent studies and projects that they themselves propose and are then mentored and held accountable for delivering by their directors. Interns can also work on more traditional director-led group projects which are determined by their director. Examples of Spring 2013 Projects: Agriculture and Animal Science: Designing and building a 2-acre permaculture farm based on local and modern farming methods, so far including plantain-tree grove, medicinal plant bed, herb garden, hardwood test-plot, and a 30-hen chicken coop.

Description: Camp
By way of introduction, my name is Bob Wetzel and I am with Lincoln Trails Boy Scout Council, which serves fifteen counties in East Central Illinois (roughly from Decatur to Robinson). We are currently exploring the possibility of providing internship opportunities as part of our Summer Camping Programs based out of Rhodes France Scout Reservation near Pana, IL. Specifically we are in the process of developing a series of off-site adventure programs for youth ages 14 to 18 to augment our traditional on-site summer camp programs. These week long, off-site programs will take place at Rhodes France Scout Reservation as well as on and around Lake Shelbyville in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Army Corps of Engineers. The off site programs include: 50 Mile Challenge: A fifty mile, three day trek; 32 miles by bike, 13 mile trail hike, and 10 mile canoe paddle. Conservation Corps: Hands-on environmental and trail work, plus a 20 mile canoe trek Sails and Trails: Sailing, Canoeing, Kayaking, trail hiking and primitive camping on Lake Shelbyville (This program is still in development.) We believe that these programs would present excellent experience and leadership development opportunities for college students considering careers in recreational program administration and delivery. I have taken some time to review the WIU/RPTA Undergraduate Internship Manual and believe that we can accommodate the requirements and curriculum outlined as follows: Week 1: Camp equipment facility preparation and maintenance Week 2: Program training and familiarization - Staff “dry run “the off site programs Week 3: Staff Orientation Week including youth protection, first aid, rules, etc. Weeks 4, 5, 6, 7: Program Execution and facilitation Week 8: Camp and equipment recovery and facility closure Weeks 9 and 10: Facilitate and Staff the Cub Scout (age 6-10) resident and day camp programs. Although the internship opportunity would be non- paid, we can provide room and board within the programs while they are in operation and/or in the homes of members of the executive board (as needed) during weekends, etc. We would consider a small weekly stipend as well.
