How Internships Work — Costs — Where to Start
How does the Camp Manitou Internship program work?
Once you fill out the necessary paperwork through your school, we will assign you a Summer Mentor. We have an amazing Leadership Team with incredible talent and ‘real-life’ experience to share. At the beginning of the summer, you and your mentor will create a program that meets your school’s requirements and Camp Manitou’s expectations.
Together, you will create a list of responsibilities, projects, and milestones that will help you achieve your Internship goals. Coming out of the summer you will be able to walk away from camp with at least one tangible project (a presentation, a video, an essay, etc.).
What are the cost implications for becoming an Intern?
Before you get too involved you need to evaluate many factors, including the costs.
Most universities will charge you for the course credits. It can be well over $500 per credit hour.
Sounds great… where do I start?
You will need to speak with the internship supervisor at your school to determine whether an internship at camp is relevant to your studies.
- What objectives they would like you to complete?
- How many hours would be required?
- What projects will you need to work on while at camp… and after camp?
- And so on
You will then need to prepare a proposal and submit to school for approval. You can list our Staffing Coordinator as the on-campus internship supervisor.
