Are you looking for an amazing cross-cultural summer internship or employment opportunity? Since 1977 Fox Valley Christian Action (FVCA) has provided overnight summer camp and leadership programs for youth from low-income communities in the Fox Valley, 35 miles from Chicago. Each summer we bring 750 children and teenagers to our beautiful 85-acre campus for a week of Christian camp or extended leadership prorgams, all provided at no cost to their families. We are hiring 35 young adults to serve on our team.

It takes great commitment to serve on the FVCA summer staff; to love the kids and to see them in the way that God sees them. We are looking for staff who are highly energetic and willing to reflect Christ in all they do.
What does FVCA provide for you? We will provide you with a life-changing 10 week urban experience. We will provide your room, board, training and a guaranteed salary. We will assist you in a simple process to help raise support for your short-term mission expereince; and, your salary and expenses will be fully paid by FVCA regardless of the amount of support that you raise. If you need internship "credot" we will work with you and your school to make sure your experience meets your requirements!
Summer is an incredible time to impact the life of a youth from low-income neighborhoods. You or your church can make a difference!
In Kane County alone, we have 25,000 youth whose families struggle below the federal poverty limit. For these kids, summer is a hard time. It’s hot, dry, and there’s nothing to do. Summer sports and family vacations are luxuries unavailable to them.
In 1977 we began with day camps, and soon began providing overnight camping programs, always at no cost to these families. Today Riverwoods provides opportunities every summer for over 800 youth.
Riverwoods Family Campus hosts a full resident Summer Discovery experience for spiritual growth. Group Bible studies, daily quiet times and testimonies are shared. Summer Discovery also includes canoeing, biking, hiking, arts & crafts, sports & games, and camp-outs.
Young children have multiple experiences each day to help them grow spiritually including a daily cabin-group Bible study, daily chapel and we end each day with our high energy evening Round-up—a time to share the Gospel creatively with music, puppets, skits and crazy activities on our pavilion stage.
