Ventura Wild Internship Program


About Our Internship Program

Ventura Wild’s internship program is a professional development opportunity for those interested in working in a learning environment that promotes awareness, understanding and profound respect for nature.

Interns are scheduled to assist one of our Summer Camps (1 week, 5 – 7 hrs/day) with the opportunity to secure additional camps. We ask for interns to be present for the whole week to best establish a rapport with the group and build a consistent and meaningful group dynamic. Interns will work alongside 3 experienced outdoor educators to support a group of 12 participants.

Must be at least 16+ years of age and have reliable transportation.

This organization does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, disability, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.
