Earn and Learn
Many young people are often left with questions like, "what do I do next? " or "where do I go from here? "
With the cost of university or college, it is no wonder one wants to be sure before making the commitment. The Forge Program gives you an opportunity to develop your skills, grow in your faith and discover your passions while providing you a weekly $150.00 stipend, meals and accommodations.
A year long commitment as a Forge Apprentice entitles you to approximately $4,500.00 in training and certifications. Apprentices, in turn, help Camp Arnes by providing vital ministry service through teaching Outdoor Education, hosting and ministering to youth in summer. Apprentices also have an opportunity to fund raise additional support through the Share a Days Wage Program.
If one year isn't enough Apprentices can apply to continue growing for another year as a Forge Intern. Interns work with the programming and administration side of camp and are provided with a weekly $200.00 stipend, meals and accommodations.
A special part of year two is an opportunity to go to a camp in New Zealand or Australia. Interns will be responsible for raising half of their funds through the Share a Days Wage Program.
