Summer Intern - YD Adventures Oregon

Opportunity Overview

Each summer YD Adventures hires a select number of talented young adults from all over the world to lead adventure trips for teens in Washington, Idaho and Oregon. The Summer Staff ministry team is an integral part of YD Adventures, which is committed to reaching today’s youth through dynamic relationships and challenging experiences.

YD Adventures uses powerful adventure-based ministry to share Christ with teens and deepen their understanding of God. We challenge teens by taking them to the edge: dropping them into a rappel or rafting them through Class III and IV rapids. By experiencing these incredible challenges in God’s creation, teens are able to “unplug” from their day–to–day lives and experience God in ways they never have before.

As a member of the Summer Staff team, you could guide teens on a variety of wilderness activities, including: whitewater rafting, rock climbing, backpacking, challenge courses, horseback riding, kayaking, and more. You will work alongside the YDA Staff to design the ministry program for each trip and assist in the preparations and logistical operations of the trips. As you serve others, you will also be challenged in your own faith as you work in Christian service with a team of believers and experience your own “edge” moments.

Requirements for Summer Staff:
  • A passion for sharing about Jesus Christ with teens.
  • A teachable spirit.
  • A desire to invest in relationships.
  • A love for the outdoors.
  • Attendance at all trainings. (beginning mid-to-late May)
  • A full summer commitment.

Training runs mid-May through June (exact dates vary by Adventure base)
Trips run through the end of August or early September (exact dates vary by Adventure base; early release can be arranged for those in school)
