Pathways To Learning a nonprofit providing programing to various residential outdoor facilities is offering these internship programs. Its mission is to provide an environment that fosters positive relationships, growth, and encouragement. It will create outdoor based experiences that will sustain, enrich each youth’s physical and mental well-being. These experiences recognize that being outdoors creates valuable opportunities for youth to grow physically, emotionally, academically and socially. It provides these opportunities at three different residential camps as well as in the city. In 2019 we will serve 13,000 youth many who are underserved. The following are the various intern opportunities.
Tonto Creek Camp is owned by ASU and situated in the Tonto National Forest eighteen miles outside of Payson AZ. There are many streams and springs. Recently a $2.5 MM turf field was added. Chauncey Ranch is twenty five miles from Prescott Valley in the foothills of the Bradshaw Mountains. It is located on 5,000 acres and has the amenities of a camp (zip line, archery, ponds and horses). At this location we will offer horticulture, equestrian and animal therapy.

Additionally, each intern will work as a team leader in areas that reflect their skills, gifts and personality.

Our internship programs are a life-changing experience; a time where each intern grows personally, relationally, professionally, coming away more energized and prepared for a lifetime of service.
