Current Retreat Team

Prairie Star Ranch offers an exciting opportunity to become a missionary for the New Evangelization through our Retreat Team Internship Program. As a member of the program, you will lead retreats, help out around camp and have the opportunity for great personal and spiritual growth. It is a wonderful chance to share your faith, build Christ’s Kingdom and serve others in a beautiful natural setting.
