Many of our positions can be turned into internships and we would be happy to work with successful applicants to create a custom internship that will meet their needs as well as ours. If you are looking to earn internship credit for one of our advertised positions, please note this on your application for that position. If you have a new idea for an internship that does not align with any of our current positions, please contact one of our Directors with your proposal.
Individuals who model positive volunteerism in the camp community play an essential role in our positive youth development work. For many, this step is about putting into practice leadership skills gained as a camper and developing them further as you transition into the role of being a camp counselor.
