Learn to hows and whys of outdoor programming!
If you are wondering what working in the outdoor recreation field looks like as a career, this is the internship for you. Our program & operations interns are some of our most essential staff each summer, routinely completing critical operations and making sure trips continue to run safely and on time. They get to experience a bit of everything, spending part of their time providing support to warehouse, kitchen, and trail operations and part of their time developing and implementing program or operations based projects in the office. This mixture gives interns a nice balance of learning the operational systems of the outdoor recreation industry, as well as having the leadership opportunity to develop a project of their own. Some previous intern driven projects have included: rebuilding Wilderness Inquiry’s adaptive gear, updating our educational interpretation kits, and planting and maintaining a wildflower boulevard garden. These interns will also assist in staffing at least one extended trip.
