A group of four interns will complete a ten-week internship at High Rocks from early June to mid-August. The internship has two main components—seminars and hands-on experience working with teen girls. Interns support staff in summer programs (camps and trips), work as mentors with individual teens, and complete an original curriculum of reading, reflection and discussion designed to enrich their teaching work. This creative and unique experience will help you grow as a leader, a thinker, and a doer. Our internship is rigorous emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
Camps are the heart of High Rocks. Interns serve as mentors, role models, and teachers during the two camps: New Beginnings for 7th grade girls (12 days) and Camp Steele for 8th-12th graders (15 days). Before camp, interns help prepare the campground and plan clas-ses. During camp they are paired with a master teacher to assist in a class that teaches diverse subject areas such as math, science, and creative expressions. At the end of the day you will get to enjoy campfires, skits, hikes, stargazing, and ultimate Frisbee in the field!
Our most successful interns are extroverted and/or service oriented, deep-thinkers, open-minded, creative, flexible, and looking for a challenge. You need a desire for adventure, a sense of humor, an intense work ethic, and a passion for the High Rocks mission to educate, empower, and inspire young West Virginia women.
