Summer interns make a four-month commitment from May 15th through September 30th working primarily for the BOEC Wilderness Program. The summer begins with three weeks of intense training. During this time interns learn their role within the BOEC and get a chance to develop the hard (technical) and soft (people) skills needed to work here at the BOEC. Throughout the summer, interns get hands on experience in all aspects of programming and become staff on wilderness courses. The responsibilities include planning, implementing/ facilitating, and evaluating the courses that they are a part of. Courses can range from one to fourteen days. They may be held here at our wilderness site or in a mobile format (camping, canoeing, or rafting trips off the BOEC site). Interns play a role in planning the menu, pulling the gear, facilitating the high ropes course, canoeing, hiking, climbing, cycling and other outdoor adventures and evaluating the course at the end. The amount of responsibility given to the interns depends on what each individual proves he or she can handle. Along with working wilderness courses, interns are provided with the opportunity to work with the operations manager and the administrative staff. The summer internship allows for interns to gain experience working in outdoor /experiential education, recreation management, therapeutic recreation, and working with people with disabilities, as well as a chance to take advantage of Colorado’s summer experience.
