Employment - Summer internship opportunities

The following are the general guidelines that apply to our internship opportunities.

Ideal Candidate

Important Note: An intern can learn about the content/curriculum of a focus area, but a strong desire to work with youth comes from within.  An intrinsic interest in and ability to work with youth is more important than focus area knowledge!  We will consider applicants who need extra training if they have a proven history of outstanding work with youth!

General Internship Description

Internships are 9-10 weeks long, including a 1 or 2 week training session.  At Blueberry Cove Interns live in cabins or tents with campers for 6.5 weeks.  The summer schedule is demanding with little personal time off except during weekends.
