Time Off

You get time off! All of our staff is off on weekends from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon (about 42 hours). Most staffers take this opportunity to head home to do laundry, run errands, go to church, REST or maybe catch a movie. For those out-of-town staff, you can stay on the property for the weekends or more commonly be invited home with one of our local staff members!

Sibling Discount

Not only would we love for your younger siblings to come to Camp Carl, they get to come for HALF OFF. Let's repeat that: your sibling can get a 50% discount for a week of camp! Bonus!


Community at Camp Carl is authentic, real, and life-changing. You live and serve arm-and-arm with generationally-minded and eternity-focused people who will LOVE sacrificially. The community that you will gain over the course of your time at Camp Carl will enrich your life, and you very well could meet the people that will stand next to you at your wedding day.

Throughout their summer, our interns learn hands-on lessons in problem solving, how to deal with conflict, and gain valuable experience with daily public speaking. By the end of their experience, our leadership interns walk away with tangible leadership skills and real life experience that set them apart as they prepare to launch into what career field God has called them to.

Media Internship

Media internships offer a deep dive into a specific area of media focus. This internship will lead our digital engagement team and enables digital content to reach thousands of people through social media and web platforms. This internship is ideal for digital marketing, communications, or media interns who love to teach others how to get better at photography or videography. Our digital engagement team has photographers, videographers, graphic designers, storytellers, and more who are solely focused on creating excellent content to share what God is doing at camp.
