The Baptist Camping Victoria (BCV) Internship is a 12 month live-in program with a focus on equipping young people with leadership qualities, life skills and tertiary qualiﬁcations. We want our young people to develop a clear picture about their future God-given calling, all while living, working, studying, and having a bunch of fun on our camp sites.
The internship is a partnership between Baptist Camping Victoria, Go Tafe, and Whitley College, a college of the University of Divinity. Over the course of the year the Interns will study and attain a Certiﬁcate IV in Outdoor Recreation, as well as complete ﬁve of eight units towards a Diploma of Theology. The Interns will also be presented with opportunities for gaining additional certiﬁcates and qualiﬁcations in Wilderness First Aid, and Surf Lifesaving Bronze Medallion.
The internship has been running since 2007 with many young people completing the program. Armed with a greater sense of self and gained qualiﬁcations, these graduate interns have gone on to successful careers in education, youth work, social work, outdoor recreation, and full-time Ministry roles in the Church.
