Rancho el Camino provides a holistic, experiential, and intensive internship for both high school (age 16+) and college age students from Mexico and The United States. Students have an opportunity to learn first hand about ministry in a cross-cultural setting and learn more about their own gifts and passions.
The internship is intentionally designed to stretch students physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and socially as they engage in cross-cultural ministry, community development, and general ranch life. Students live in a communal atmosphere and learn how to care for one another as they work and serve together. Students have the opportunity to connect with Godly mentors who desire to see them grow in their faith and life experience and help them discover their life calling.
What to Expect
Students can expect to be involved in the Ranch Community of Faith and will have time to connect with God, pray, and study the Word together on a daily basis. Students can also expect to be stretched in their capacity to lead, tackle new problems, and grow in their personal character as they work and serve together in the daily aspects of the Ranch.
Students can expect to work in the mornings at the Ranch and play and work with the children in the neighborhoods in the afternoons. Students will assist in the daily work on the Ranch and assist in the planning, prepping, and implementation of the Ranch’s Summer Day Camps. Students will be assigned to various work teams such as Construction Crew, Barn Crew, Gardening Crew, and Camp Prep Crew.
Students can also expect to have fun as they have designated times to visit the beautiful beaches around La Paz, walk the La Paz boardwalk, explore the desert, enjoy the city of La Paz, and simply enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Ranch.
