Join us in the adventure of Christian camping!
We are looking for a few energetic, enthusiastic followers of Jesus to come alongside as we “put on camp”, serving in such areas as recreation, communications, housekeeping, guest relations, lifeguarding and specific areas of involvement in our family camp programs.
Who We Are
Redwood Christian Park is a retreat center located in the heart of the Santa Cruz redwoods, committed to providing a place where worship, teaching and prayer can happen. In this beautiful setting, individuals, families and communities take advantage of the opportunity to get rest and grow in their relationship with God and each other.
RCP Internships & Team Member Positions
We offer positions for those seeking 2-11 month tours of service in the areas of program, hospitality, recreation and camp support. We are seeking staffers primarily in the age range of 18-26.

Interns and Team Members will live in staff housing. Meals will be provided in our dining hall during all summer camp programs.
