Interested in a career in environmental education? Spend the summer interning with the Annapolis Maritime Museum to delve into what it takes to be an effective environmental educator and explore future career opportunities! Interns will serve as head counselors at our popular day camp, as well as teach programs for visiting groups, and participate in professional development opportunities.
At the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park, our mission is to educate youth and adults about the Annapolis area’s rich maritime heritage and the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay through programs, exhibits, and community events. During the summer, AMM runs a popular summer camp program for over 300 local youth and provides field trip experiences for visiting groups. Our summer programming has students exploring life around the Bay and maritime heritage through the lens of environmental studies, science, social studies, art, and recreation. If this sounds fun, imagine a career encouraging exploration and inspiring young environmental stewards!
Our summer internship program offers great experience for college students interested in any of these fields of study: education, environmental studies, environmental science, or recreation. Interns will receive hands-on training and experience with environmental education best practices, lesson planning, and program facilitation. Additionally, interns will participate in professional development experiences to explore career opportunities and network. By the conclusion of the summer, interns will complete an electronic portfolio showcasing their experience. This will serve as an excellent resource when applying for jobs!
Interns earn a stipend of $2500 for the 10-week program. Housing can be arranged, if needed.
To apply, please send your resume and one letter of recommendation to the Camp Director, Katey Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Resumes will be reviewed as they are received, and selected applicants will be contacted to schedule a phone or in-person interview.
