Yes! We are able to accommodate MANY internships.

Please find out your school's requirements and send them our way so we can determine if this might be a good fit for you. Email details to summerstaff@glorieta.org

Other things to expect?

All Summer Staff will be asked to do a little bit of everything – this could mean: cleaning, washing dishes, picking up trash and serving guests any other way possible. No job (either full-time or seasonal) is above this expectation!

We love be the hands and feet of Christ as much as we can, and we believe in the model of servant-leadership. Our staff are not afraid to get dirty!

What's Glorieta's mission?

We are here to inspire Christ-like change through outdoor adventure, authentic relationships and Biblical truth (and we'll expect you to know this, too, by the time you arrive!)

Is there a place where I can wash my clothes?

Yep, we've got you covered. The Washeria will soon be one of your favorite places to hang.

What does time off look like?

We try to give all of our employees 24 hours off a week. Sometimes this fluctuates based on camp schedules and the time it takes to turn over campus.

I have dietary restrictions. Can you help me?

We can try! With actual dietary needs – doctor's note required – we can accommodate those who are gluten-free. We also serve a salad bar at almost every lunch and dinner.

Am I stuck at camp all summer?

No, not ALL summer! There will be specified times when you can leave campus and head into some of our surrounding areas, if you choose.

In Santa Fe (less than 20 miles away) you'll find great food, culture, art and city life. We are also surrounded by an incredible landscape with fun places to explore!

Internet and Cell Phones?

We try to limit cell phone usage as much as possible, so you can be focused on the guests and serving the Lord.

There is wireless internet available during time off and we are sometimes able to accommodate online classes (with permission from your direct supervisor).

We do allow cell phone use for work-related things while on the job in order to communicate with our staff in a timely fashion.

Is there a dress code?

All Glorieta employees are expected to maintain personal dress and appearance appropriate for their work position. Please use your best judgment, and dress in a manner that would not be offensive or cause others to stumble.

Can people come and visit me?

Yes! But there are a few stipulations. Visitors can visit only during approved times and all visitors must gain approval at least two weeks in advance of their intended visit.

Upon arrival, visitors must check in at the Retreats Office. All visitors must pay for their room, board and activities during their stay at Glorieta.

Overnight stays are limited to availability and are only available on time off. Your guest must arrive after cleaning and will not be allowed in their rooms until 5 p.m. on check-in day.

Your guests will then have to check out before 10:30 a.m. on check-out day.
