Q: How many people make up a UW team?
A: There are normally four or five people on each UW team, and each team will normally have a head coach (team leader), assistant coach, and three interns.
Q: What does a typical day look like?
A: The schedule of a UW intern is fast paced and full of excitement. A normal day involves leading two different camps, one in the morning and the other in the evening, with some free time in the afternoons. Many teams use their free time to relax, see a movie, go to a baseball game, or do some sightseeing.
Q: Where will I stay?
A: The churches you will serve during the summer will provide host homes for you. The churches and host families will also provide for the majority of your meals during the summer.
Q: What if I cannot commit to a full summer?
A: For National teams UW makes allowances for a wedding attendance or other excused 1-3 day absences in the summer. For more than that, UW trains and recruits local teams in certain regions of the country that have a schedule that is not as travel heavy and allows a part of a summer involvement. For more details call Tim Conrad at 843-540-3281.
Q: What is the difference between National Teams and Local teams?
A: In 2019 UW will begin a series of local training sites (CO,CA,SC, HI) that will train a second team for that Region of the country that can do other camps in the region, besides the ones that are lead by one of the National Teams.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Anyone who applies will be required to raise $450 in support. Regardless of when the application is submitted, everyone will also need to provide their own way to Bluffton, SC training in June. At the end of the summer, each intern will be paid $150 per week (Head coach and assistant coach positions are paid more) for the six weeks of summer work after National Training. This however does not include training week. If the intern wishes to raise more salary, contact Tim Conrad.
Q: Am I required to pay for my own food, transportation, and lodging?
A: No. Other than getting yourself to Bluffton, SC, UW will provide for all of your traveling expenses, food, and lodging throughout the summer.
