Important Dates

June 16 - 26 - Intern Training. High energy, interactive training takes place at SU Canada Head Office, in Pickering, ON to prepare interns spiritually and practically for camp missions. Led by SU staff, with a combined 50+ years of experience in church, children's and sports ministry.   

June 29 - August  21 - Local Missions. In teams, interns run sports camps in partnership with churches across Ontario.Teams are hosted by the church and have a great time leading camps, making new friends and sharing the love of Jesus.


Do I need to be an athlete? No, but SU camps are predominately sports camps. If you are not an athlete you are still encouraged to apply.

Will I be paid? Yes. The amount will depend on your experience, position and funding.

Am I expected to fundraise? Yes. SU is a not-for-profit organization and does not charge for the internship. SU also strives to make it possible for every kid to attend camp and to make this possible we keep the cost of camp at a bare minimum. To facilitate ministry and training costs, SU staff and interns fundraise to support the ministry. This is also an essential skill to learn, especially for individuals going into ministry. SU will guide and equip you to fundraise. Please note that you DO NOT fundraise your salary, instead you fundraise to support the ministry.

What am I expected to do? Interns are expected to represent SU, and ultimately, Christ, as they travel across Ontario running quality day camps.  All interns will work with children, lead games, lead devotions and demonstrate Christ's love to everyone they meet.  

Do I need to be a student? Preferably, Yes, but we will take applicants from ages 17-30 years old.

I don't live in Ontario, can I still apply?  Yes, the internship is open to all students who can legally work in Canada.  Those who would like to be part of the Internship but cannot legally work in Canada can still apply and participate on a volunteer basis. 

I don't live in Canada, can I still apply? Those who do not live in Canada can apply for the International Internship. Download the application here.
