ACMNP looks very different in different locations. Be open to new experiences and try not to go in with too many expectations!

What I liked
I appreciated the ministry experience and getting to spend an entire summer in a national park! My job with Xanterra, the concessionaire that operates in Glacier, was also great. I made much more money than I expected and also made some new best friends, from all over the nation and the world!
What I wish was different
My team was not exactly what I had imagined, so working with them was definitely an experience. As ACMNP is an interdenominational ministry, it is reasonable that my team members were from a different denomination, but I felt a little outnumbered and would have appreciated it if their outlook on the "interdenominational" aspect of the ministry was a little more open minded.
Be confident in your ability to speak about your faith and connect with your co-workers and visitors to the park! Just talking to people made the summer one of my favorites of my life so far.
