Thank you for your interest in the 2007 SeaWorld Adventure Camp Internship programs, sponsored by the Education Department at SeaWorld Orlando Adventure Park. This fast-paced experiential learning opportunity is designed for undergraduate students who have completed their sophomore year and are in good standing at a recognized academic institution. Applicants should be seeking degrees in education, science, or recreation. This is a paid Internship, and students may additionally arrange to receive academic credit through their faculty advisor.
SeaWorld Orlando has two camp programs that are accredited by the American Camping Association - Day Camp and Resident Camp. Day Camp programs focus on learning about animals and their habitats at SeaWorld. Day Camp Interns are co-counselors and are responsible for helping to facilitate creative crafts, games, activities, behind-the-scenes visits as well as visits to SeaWorld's shows and attractions. Resident Camp programs are multi-day, overnight trips to field locations such as the Florida Keys and Florida's diverse east coast. These programs immerse middle and high school students in the study of marine science through activities such as snorkeling, canoeing, and exploring the challenges and rewards of working with animals. Interns with current American Red Cross lifeguard certification and who are able to pass the Resident Camp Swim Test may serve as co-counselors for Resident Camp programs. Both Internship programs begin on May 21, 2007, with the Day Camp Internship ending on August 5, 2007 and the Resident Camp Internship ending on August 19, 2007.
Based on a long-term commitment to education the SeaWorld Education Department strives to provide an enthusiastic, imaginative, and intellectually stimulating atmosphere to help students of all ages reach their academic potential.
Specifically, our goals are:
- To instill in students and guests of all ages an appreciation for science and a respect for all living creatures and habitats.
