Intern Program ~ Camp Counselors

Our Pal's Place offers an Animal Advocate Internship for rising 10th - graduating high school students and college students. Interns are selected based on interviews and are eligible to be Camp Counselors after successfully completing training. This is a great way to have a fun-filled summer working with rescued animals and teaching kids while earning service hours and receiving a letter of recommendation. This is also an excellent program for those who want to better understand animal welfare and are interested in an animal-related, teaching or business administration careers.
Camp Counselors at Our Palís Place are role model animal advocates to the youth who attend Camp O.P.P. 
Camp Counselors are familiar with the solutions to current animal welfare problems (taught during training) and maintain a positive, upbeat attitude during all discussions. When campers are participating in hands-on activities with the animals, the camp counselors are responsible for enforcing safety rules while assisting with camp activities. During learning and game time, camp counselors can assist with conducting the activities or spend time with the animal residents of our pet adoption facility. Camp Counselors work together to determine who works which weeks of camp. To receive service hours and a letter of recommendation, a counselor must work four of the nine weeks of camp.

  • April: Interviews
  • April - May: Weekend trainings (training schedule will be finalized based on applicants'  schedules)
