Why Work for QCCC – Ask an Intern

Home / Why Work for QCCC – Ask an Intern

We are in recruitment mode at QCCC, with applications open for opportunities in our Campfire Discipleship Internship program, and an Apprentice Chef (Tamborine).

We love our Interns at QCCC! You may have met one on a recent camp you have been to at QCCC. They are amazing young people who serve our guests, and each other, every day here at QCCC. And we are gearing up to recruit for our 2023 intake of the QCCC Discipleship Internship program.

Do you know someone who might be interested? This week we ask first year intern, Adam (from City North Baptist Church), why he applied last year for the 2022 QCCC Discipleship Internship program. Take it away Adam!

Applications for the full-time CAMPFIRE Discipleship Internships are for the Mapleton and Tamborine sites, with successful applicants set to commence in early 2023. The two-year CAMPFIRE Discipleship Internship is a great opportunity for school leavers to:

  • obtain training and a nationally accredited qualification in outdoor education,
  • gain real world industry experience with Queensland’s largest provider of group camps,
  • grow in spiritual formation through Christian discipleship and mentoring, thus discovering the value of integrating faith and work,
  • live on-site and build life-long friendships.

Many of the interns who have completed their internship have gone on to secure permanent positions with QCCC or in the wider industry.

The nationally accredited training involved in the CAMPFIRE program is delivered through Malyon Vocational Training and will result in the Intern obtaining a Certificate III in Outdoor Leadership Training.

Application for the internship is open to everyone and a rigorous selection and interview process will be carried out before places are offered.  The internship program will also have a strong focus on themes of reconciliation, country and community and therefore Aboriginal Christians are particularly encouraged to apply.
