Internships are new to Greystone, and we could not be more excited about how they have grown into a new program for our staff. Being a camp counselor pushes you to grow in so many facets professionally, but sometimes the job can be hard to explain. We understand the pressures of college and the need to beef up your resume, and we are so proud that our staff can now do both during the summer! This past summer, we had some FABULOUS interns that are excited to share a little more about their experience! Enjoy!
It is not an overstatement to say my internship at Greystone was a turning point in my academic and professional career. I went in with a passion and scope, and came out with a wealth of knowledge from directors across camp, a more refined curiosity, and a focus for the next year of my graduate coursework, research, and professional project. While I had experience in Sustainability Initiatives, narrowing my concentration to energy conservation and efficiency was new to me. Exploring your dreams and taking risks in a new field is extremely exciting when you’re surrounded by an extensive support system like camp. Knowing that there are so many people praying for you and genuinely eager to see you succeed by making the space for you to try, make mistakes, and learn is what interning at camp affords you!
