Education interns work with park staff to develop and present curriculum-based programs for students in grade K-12. In addition, interns may present or assist with special programs, such as summer camps, Discovery Day labs, scout programs, and teacher workshops. Programs are offered both in the park and in the classroom.
Due to the variety of park themes and resources and the diversity of groups served, interns have the opportunity to learn about and teach about a wide variety of topics. Qualified applicants must have experience working with children, think and act creatively, possess excellent communication and problem solving skills, have a sense of wonder, and be able to meet the physical and mental demands of teaching outdoors.
Position descriptions and application information will be posted here when positions open. Applications for the winter/spring positions are accepted in the fall and selections are generally made in November. Applications for the summer/fall positions are accepted at the beginning of the year and selections are generally made in April.
Please check back in September for information about the winter/spring positions.
For additional information, please contact Mark DeGregorio, the education and outreach coordinator, at 970-586-3777 or by e-mail.
