Summer Camp Interns

Join our team at Historic Yellow Springs as a Summer Camp Intern! Most interns are college or high school students, who like kids, and art, pottery, nature or archaeology.

Have fun as an intern while you assist the camp instructors. Each week we offer a new camp theme with related activities. Interns are attendance takers, lesson helpers, sign makers, game leaders, lunch coordinators, and all-around assistants. Historic Yellow Springs offers a stipend for internships.

Build experience that may be helpful to future employment. Develop skills in teamwork, mentoring, communication, planning, organizing, coaching, leadership, and working with children.

Many schools offer credit for camp internships, particularly in the fields of education, sports management, coaching and counseling. If this is important to you, please check with your school about their program and policies.

If you would like to participate in our Kids Summer Camp program as an intern please contact cpizzi@yellowsprings.org.
