Intern Opportunities 2022:

Camp is a diverse work environment where every day is ripe with opportunities to grow proffessionally. For that reason we have created an Internship Program where we will work with you, your school, and your goals to create an experience worthy of your resume.

Besides taylored Internships we do have two dedicated Internship opportunities: Vidoe/Photo Intern and Mental Health Resource Intern.

Great memories are made at camp. We know because we’ve seen 94 summers worth of smiles, silly songs, and skits around the campfire. However, we wouldn’t be able to relive all those magical moments without great photography. This is why we are looking for a Video/Photo Intern for Summer 2021.

Working at camp is highly rewarding, but can also be high stress. We care about the health and safety of everyone at camp, including staff. For this reason we are prioritizing the mental health of our team by hiring a Mental Health Resource Intern to help support them through the summer season. 

 

 

Job Description: Photo/Video Intern

The Photo/Video Intern can be a full-time or part-time seasonal position that works closely with the Camp Director, full-time staff, and all seasonal staff.  The Twinlow Photo/Video Intern is responsible for all photography, videography, and Social Media coverage of Twinlow’s Summer Season. This includes taking photos and videos for each week of camp, editing and producing professional media, and helping manage Twinlow’s Instagram and Facebook. 

As the Photo/Video intern you have the option to stay on-site all summer just like our Summer Staff, or you can travel to and from camp. Each week we will have a “shot-list” for you to complete, and it will be your responsibility to get it done by the end of the week. 

We are happy to work with your university to earn a credit for your internship. To make sure you have the tools you need to do your job, we are offering a 2022 iPad and Apple Pencil for your summer. At the end of your internship, the iPad and Pencil are yours to keep!
