In support of this mission, the Summer Camp Leader will work with a team of staff and volunteers to create a fun, safe, and educational summer camp experience for children in our community. The purpose of the summer intern program is to give interested individuals hands-on experience working in a ministry environment, and a chance to exercise their skills related to the field. The intern program also serves to compliment and further the ministry of Hope Church Mississauga, leading to an increased ability to serve the community and city of Mississauga.

The intern program is comprised of young men and women who attend and wholeheartedly embrace the mission of Hope Church Mississauga.

As Camp Leader, the intern will be required to help prepare for summer day camp (happening for two weeks, July 8th-19th), work as a camp leader throughout camp and organize and debrief after the camp.

During camp, the Camp Leader is required to oversee and lead our volunteer teams, manage the volunteer schedule, lead campers between the ages of 4-10, teach and behave in accordance with the Church’s doctrinal statement, create and facilitate activities. After camp, the Camp Leader will help take down decorations and physical arrangements used for camp, reorganize the resources and curriculum for future use, and help return the facility to its original arrangement before camp. The Camp Leader may also be called upon to fulfil other duties as required for the Hope Staff as it pertains to summer camp.


The Discipleship Intern is supervised by the Director of Welcome Ministries, in cooperation with other staff. A collaborative approach will be taken to provide the intern with coaching and training. Weekly planning and feedback meetings will be held to provide the intern with clear, measurable expectations, so the intern is able to successfully manage, deliver upon expectations, and perform in an environment that is collaborative, supportive, and challenges them. Upon completion of the internship, the intern will receive a written performance review.


This is a full-time position offering 35 hours a week, working 5 days a week for 8 weeks beginning June 3rd.
