At Rocky, internships are more than just resume builders. Here you are guaranteed to…
Make new friends
Raise your hand if bonfires, weekly adventure hikes and "Taco Tuesdays" sound like your cup of tea. At Rocky there is an undeniable sense of community that intertwines interns with seasonal staff, volunteers, and senior employees.
You're constantly surrounded by likeminded people: people who love what they do, inspire you to explore the world, and become a better person.
As and intern at Rocky you're treated like part of the team. Training and additional online seminars are available at your fingertips. Creating your own individualized development plan, including shadowing senior employees, will ensure that you receive a well-rounded experience catered to your interests.
Spend lots of time outdoors
Part of an interpretation intern's duties is to hike trails and talk to visitors;you even live close enough to walk to work. There are hundreds of miles of trails and designated wilderness to enjoy on your days off, too!
Learn things you never thought you wanted to know
You'll make all your friends jealous with your newfound elk versus moose scat identification skills. But seriously, you won't go a day without learning something new.
Inspire new generations of park-lovers
Through leading programs about human history, swearing in Junior Rangers, and teaching visitors how they can protect Rocky Mountain National Park, you'll encourage others to become stewards of this land.
