Camp Ondessonk hosts interns in a variety of academic majors, and the Program Staff position is the perfect way to get some great experience and your foot in the door at a wonderful organization.  Internships are based on the existing program staff positions and are paid the same rate as their fellow program staff.  Interns who would like to design their own experience outside of the above contract dates are welcome to contact us, but those positions may have a short period of unpaid work.  All other benefits such as housing and meals will still be included.  Contact Greg Santen at greg.santen@ondessonk.com to discuss the possibilities and see if there is something that might fit with your area of study and semester calendar.
