Sun Valley Adaptive Sports offers summer and winter internship opportunities for Therapeutic Recreation students as well as students in other recreation related fields. Interns receive hands-on experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with disabilities. They will also help with grant writing, research, and assist in the planning process of our programs. Best of all, they will have fun, make great friends, and enjoy a life-changing experience.
Internships for our Summer Adventures program run from May through the end of August. Summer Adventures is a 12-week day camp for children and adolescents with disabilities. The types of disabilities an intern will be working with include physical, developmental, and various mental disorders. Interns work directly with the SVAS staff and will be supervised by our Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS). Don't worry, she's cool! Program activities include martial arts, pottery, yoga, hiking, camping, biking, swimming, tennis, and various field trips throughout southern Idaho. Application deadline is April 15th of the current year.
Our program director is always looking for mature, enthusiastic, and passionate individuals of all levels of experience, background, and education. If you would like to join our fun and passionate team, please email or call us for more information.
