Don’t have all summer? Intern at Camp ENERGY!

August 4-10, 2018 (campers arrive on the 5th)

Join our mission to improve the health and wellness of our community. This internship is an opportunity for motivated undergraduate and graduate students to augment their education and career preparation in a variety of fields, including nutrition/dietetics, athletics/physical education, pediatrics and adolescent weight management. For example, students interested in nutrition can help campers personalize nutrition plans at camp and at home and help lead nutrition education sessions, mentored by a registered dietitian. A kinesiology major may help campers modify physical activities to their ability and set exercise goals, mentored by a collegiate swim coach. Students interested in behavioral health can learn how risk factors impact health and weight in adolescents while they work with campers individually under the mentorship of a pediatric psychologist.

During the internship, students will support adolescents ages 11-18 in a week-long journey incorporating education around nutrition, fitness, and healthy lifestyles. Students act as camp counselors to directly foster the growth of camp participants, offering individualized attention in structured group programming. The internship will also provide opportunities for mentored relationships, skill development (including leadership, accountability, teamwork, and communication), and an experiential foundation for transition to the workforce. This is a great opportunity to build a resume through experience, service hours, and letters of recommendation preparing for internships and/or graduate school.  For more information visit GoCampENERGY.org

Spend your Summer in Maine Inspiring a Great Crew of Guys to Eat Healthy

Camp Skylemar, a well-established (our 70th year!) residential summer camp for boys in southern Maine is in search of a food science/nutrition major to serve as our “Nutritionist.”
We seek an enthusiastic, responsible, health-minded student who will supervise/provide meals for about a dozen campers on special diets (celiac, diabetes, various allergies). Also, she/he will be involved with developing and executing a healthy eating program for our entire population of 200 boys and 75 college athletes who serve as counselors.
This is an amazing experience for a motivated future dietician who enjoys working with children. She/he has the opportunity to creatively pass on the knowledge of healthy living, while also supporting those who specifically need extra help with how they eat.
Our season runs June 10-August 10. Housing, meals, travel expenses and stipend of $2,000 are included. We are also happy to supervise an internship or independent study if your program permits.
Interested applicants should apply through our website at www.skylemar.com, or can email Arleen Shepherd at arleen@skylemar.com.
