3. Professional Development Intern; The American Camp Association; New

York, NY

The American Camp Association (ACA-NY) is a non-profit organization

focused on working with camp professionals to share our knowledge and

experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs. As a professional

development intern you will play an integral part of this process.

Although this is a small organization, there is a lot happening at once

so the ability to multi-task is crucial. The majority of this internship

will be geared towards all aspects of event management. However, some

days will be spent researching a variety of specialty camps online,

creating databases, and contacting members. Basic computer skills are

necessary (word, outlook, excel).

ACA-NY is a casual environment but professionalism is expected. If

you're interested in learning about event management or how non-profit

organizations operate and are looking for someplace to work hard but

have fun then this internship is for you.

Please contact Scott Rothschild with any questions at scott@aca-ny.org
