                          RRC Intern Community Guidelines
                                       2012

We desire to build a strong community of Interns that will encourage growth and result in vibrant
ministry. In order to accomplish this, we want to build an environment at camp that is free from as
many distractions of the everyday world as possible. We hope that this will be an intense season of
pursuing Christ as you submit yourself to Him this spring.

   1. Housing. Please sleep in your assigned housing. ‘Sleepovers’ are discouraged (permission
       must be obtained in advance). No members of the opposite sex are allowed in your bedroom
       or hallway at any time.
   2. Food. Breakfast & supper are self-serve (except when Guest Groups are in camp). Leftovers
       and a limited supply of food is available in the Lakeview Dining Room fridge. All food &
       dishes must be put away when you finish your meal – keep Lakeview clean!
   3. Laundry. Access to machines in Wolfe Creek Lodge is by sign up. Interns may do laundry
       after supper only. Follow all posted rules. Please do not overload the machines. Dry your
       clothes shortly after the wash cycle is complete: don’t be a laundry hog!
   4. Parking. In order to serve our guests you will be asked to park in the far west end of the
       Wolfe Creek parking lot.
   5. Biking. Subject to Guest Group use, access to mountain bikes is not restricted, as long as
       you are with at least one other person. Be sure to wear a helmet at all times and use the sign
       out sheet in the Beach Hut to record when you leave and when you return. Care for the
       equipment (return it to the racks, hang it up, lock it up). Be back by dusk – no one is
       allowed on trails after dark. All Interns will receive a key if requested ($10.00 deposit).
   6. Kayaking. Subject to Guest Group use, access to kayaks is not restricted, as long as you are
       with at least one other person. Be sure to wear a PFD at all times and use the sign out sheet
       in the Beach Hut to record when you leave and when you return. Care for the equipment
       (return it to the racks, hang it up, lock it up). Be back by dusk – no one is allowed on the
       water after dark.
   7. Hiking. Because of the risk of encountering wild animals, you must hike with at least one
       other person. Sign out at the WCL Reception Desk, and sign back in upon return.
   8. Swimming Pool. Interns are able to swim during free time (when the pool is open) or early
       morning (laps only – must be with at least one other adult). If the pool cover is on, peel it
       back to create 1 or 2 ‘lanes’ for swimming. Replace the cover after you are done. Under no
       circumstance is anyone allowed to swim under the cover!
   9. Games Room. You may play foosball, ping pong, pool, or shuffleboard after dinner (as
       long as it does not interfere with Guest Group activities).
   10. Technology. Community and relationships are core values of Young Life. DVD’s and
       streaming videos are therefore limited to two movies per week. This includes viewing on
       laptops, iPods and other portable devices. Please decide in advance when and what you will
       be watching. Be sure to start the movie early enough to ensure that it ends before 11:00 pm.
       Cell phone coverage is limited. Please do not carry your phone while you are working.
       Personal laptops may be used to access the internet after work hours.
   11. Romance. Romantic relationships between single staff have proven to be a distraction to the
       program, campers, staff, and especially those involved in the relationship. Building a
       romantic relationship at camp can lead to confusion, discord, and communication problems.
       Because of this, Interns may not pursue romantic relationships at camp. If problems arise in
       this area, those involved will be asked to modify their behaviour or forfeit their positions.
12. Club 56. This space is a lounge for Property Staff & Interns.
         Keep this area clean and tidy – do not leave personal items (guitars, books, DVDs) in
            the lounge.
         Wash your dishes after each use. Keep the kitchen area clean.
         A major cleanup of Club 56 and your living space must be done weekly (typically
            Sunday). This includes vacuuming, emptying the garbage cans, cleaning out the
            fridge, and arranging the furniture.
13. Safety. Safety is extremely important at RockRidge Canyon! You will be required to
    complete relevant online Safety Training modules. Details will be provided.
14. Visitors. Parents are welcome to visit you during the summer (based on availability).
    Obviously, the more warning you give, the more likely we will be able to say ‘yes’. Visitor
    forms are available in the Office. Housing is very tight, so we would encourage you not to
    invite friends to RRC.
15. Leaving the Property. Interns are permitted to leave the property during their scheduled
    day off. All Interns must sign out at the WCL Reception Desk, and sign back in upon
    their return. Please note that SS are not permitted to leave the property.
16. Time Off. The rental schedule will dictate the timing of days off: as far as possible, we will
    schedule days off back to back. We will aim for a 5 day work week prior to the YL Camping
    season. When we hit ‘summer’, you will be expected to work 6 days per week.
17. Linens. WCL linens (bedding & towels) must be changed weekly to prevent damage from
    soiling. Please exchange your towels & bedding at the WCL laundry every Monday.
18. Sleep. Sleep is very important. We want you to stay healthy and to enjoy your summer. To
    a large degree, camper safety depends on your level of alertness. Please be in your room
    ready for bed half an hour after cabin horn during the summer.


Please commit to making each other’s experience as rewarding as possible. Take time to pray
for and with one another. Encourage one another, and strive to make this a rich spiritual
experience for yourself and others.

      And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
                                                                           Hebrews 10:24
                                         Statement of Faith
PREAMBLE
We, the members of Young Life, subscribe to the following articles of faith:
                                                   ARTICLE I
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, being given by divine inspiration, are the Word of God,
the final and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
                                                  ARTICLE II
In the Scriptures, God reveals Himself as the living and true God, Creator of all things. Perfect in love
and righteous in all His ways, this one God exists eternally as a Trinity of persons: the Father, the Son,
and the Holy Spirit.
                                                  ARTICLE III
God made man and woman in His image that He might have fellowship with us. Being estranged from
God by our disobedience, we are, as sinful people, incapable of a right relationship to God apart from
divine grace.
                                                  ARTICLE IV
The only Mediator between God and all human beings is Jesus Christ our Lord, God’s eternal Son, Who
as man fully shared and fulfilled our humanity in a life of perfect obedience.
                                                  ARTICLE V
By His death in our place, Jesus revealed the divine love and upheld divine justice, removing our guilt
and reconciling us to God. Having risen bodily from the dead and ascended into Heaven, He rules as
Lord over all and intercedes for us as our great high priest.
                                                  ARTICLE VI
The Holy Spirit, through the proclamation of the Gospel, renews our hearts, persuading us to repent of
our sins and confess Jesus as Lord. By the same Spirit, we are led to trust in divine mercy whereby we
are forgiven all our sins, justified by faith through the merit of Christ our Saviour, adopted into God’s
family as His children, and enabled so to live in the world that all people may see our good works and
the Gospel of grace at work in our lives and glorify our Father Who is in Heaven.
                                                 ARTICLE VII
God, by His Word and Spirit, calls us as sinful people into the fellowship of Christ’s body. Thus He
creates the one holy, catholic and apostolic church, united in the bonds of love, endowed with the gifts
of the Spirit, and summoned by Christ to preach the Gospel and to administer the sacraments, to carry
on the ministry of reconciliation, to relieve human need, and to strive for social justice.
                                                 ARTICLE VIII
God’s redemptive purpose will be consummated by the return of Christ to raise the dead, judge all
people and establish His glorious Kingdom. Those who are apart from Christ shall be eternally
separated from God’s presence, but the redeemed shall live and reign with Him forever.

                                       Common Standards of Discipline

   The example set by every staff and volunteer is of utmost importance. We do not believe in legalism, which
advocates that spirituality in our leaders could be guaranteed by a list of constraints. Young Life expects individual
maturity dedicated to pleasing God from its total community, not mere conformity to superimposed standards. We
  remind ourselves that we are working with a most impressionable age group. This fact must have tremendous
            significance in deciding how we live. Young people look to us for leadership and example

OUR WALK                                                                                 GUIDING PRINCIPLES
In the matter of standards of Young Life community                         And whatever you do, whether in word or deed,
behavior, we stand in a difficult position, having to walk                  do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving
the fine line of middle ground between those who want                       thanks to God the Father through him.

want us to live a version of libertinism.
                                                                           Do not cause one of these little ones to stumble.
Both of these positions are less than what Scripture                        (from Matthew 18:6)
would lay down for our guidelines. Because we walk this
fine line, we run the risk of misinterpretation of our                     It will be good for those servants whose master

Does this mean that we, as a mission, are on our own in
these matters of conduct? Never! For one thing, we are in                  Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one

                                                                            receives human approval. (Romans 14:17, 18)


 Every supervisor of staff and volunteer leaders is expected to call into question any practice she or he considers
  harmful to the ministry. He/she should ask if the person involved has applied the aforementioned Scriptural
  principles to his/her own satisfaction. We are people who want the very best for our mission community, the
           Christian family, ourselves as individuals, and for the young people to whom we minister.
