Legacy Fellowship Internship
The Legacy Fellowship exists at both our east Texas location in Van, TX and our south-central Colorado location on the crest of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range in Westcliffe, CO called Horn Creek.
The Legacy Fellowship seeks to refine individuals to look more like Jesus so that they can love, serve and invest in those around them. Our 54-week Legacy Fellowship program is for recent college graduates and desires to accomplish this thru our four pillars of work experience, community, spiritual formation and the task of leadership in a premier Christian camp setting. The Fellows at both locations (Texas & Colorado) will spend nine months with their respective camp as members of our Retreats and Activities departments as well as other site specific departments as needed. Fellows will be receiving training such as a high ropes ACCT level one certification and possibly lifeguard certification to run our multiple outdoor activities. In the summer, Fellows will transition to preassigned roles at any of our five locations in Texas, Oklahoma or Colorado. Assignments are based on need and skill sets to accomplish our mission of serving our summer campers, families or groups. The Legacy Fellowship also equips individuals to effectively apply Biblical leadership principles in significant ministry opportunities. These principles are learned through regular community and family night functions, mentor relationships, and a focus on developing specific spiritual disciplines. Participants in the Legacy Fellowship will be given special consideration for entering our Master’s Program at our east Texas location which offers the opportunity to earn a Master’s degree through Dallas Baptist University at no cost to you will serving our School Programs department.
