THE SOLID GROUND INTERNSHIP
Solid Ground is a year long internship programme located at Rocklands Centre in Simon’s Town. Rocklands Centre is an outdoor adventure and conference centre spectacularly located on a 200 year old historic farm set on the mountainside overlooking False Bay, nestled between Simon’s Town and the Cape Point National Park. We are part of a rich legacy, with the first official camp having run in 1988. We currently host hundreds of campers each week, with a maximum of 220 campers at a time. At Rocklands we are passionate about creating an environment and experience where young people can learn, grow and become all that God has created them to be. Our Solid Ground Team plays a key role in seeing this happen.
As a member of the Solid Ground Team, Rocklands Centre will provide you with on-site food and accommodation, as well as a basic allowance and all the necessary training to be part of the team. You will also be given the opportunity to learn many different skills, have some exciting adventures, and make an impact on the lives of young people coming to stay here at Rocklands.
are you ready to dig into solid ground?
Jesus told a story about a man who built his house on sand.
It was easy to build, but the storms destroyed the house.
Another man laboured to build on
and when the storms came,
his house stood firm.
...spiritually, emotionally, relationally,
and in your capacity as a leader
This will be a year of accelerated growth, filled with opportunities and challenges. You will grow in your faith through individual and group based studies of Scripture, and through one-on-one mentoring and discipleship. You will grow as you give of yourself and image Christ to the campers who visit us, and as you are trained in various skills and given opportunity to put them into practice. You will also grow as you receive support and feedback from your team. You will even grow in physical strength as you spend time walking, running, climbing, swimming and generally moving around. Joining the Solid Ground team will be a life-changing opportunity.
...your time, talents, and energy
in making a difference
Do you long to have an impact on the world around you? The Solid Ground team has the opportunity to engage practically by serving as facilitators and hosts for visiting camps. This provides an incredible opportunity to build up leadership experience, as well as the chance to have a significant impact and make a difference in the lives of young people visiting our centre.
...more about God, yourself,
and the world around us
As part of the Solid Ground team you will discover more about God, yourself, and others as we engage relationally, go through courses, training sessions, and experiences together. You will discover and develop new leadership skills such as programme design, group facilitation, team work, written communication, & public speaking. You will also discover and develop life skills such as conflict resolution, confidence, self-discipline, cooking and housekeeping skills.
