Intern Program — Ages 15-17

As an Intern you’ll prepare materials, assist with supervising students, maintain Fire Keeper duty, run adventure tasks, lead games, and generally help camp run! You will also have time to work on your own skills. Space is limited and there is no fee as you work for COTEF and room and board is provided. You must have previously taken each course for which you apply. This is a great way to improve your skills and spend more time at camp!

Positions range from one week to the whole summer.

Interns must be 15-17 years old.

Instructor in Training – Ages 16-17

We have many teens who have been long-time participants or interns and have a great deal to offer but haven’t yet turned 18. Those who are interested in becoming instructors someday can apply to be an Instructor in Training.

Instructors in Training work with the instructor teams to plan and implement programs. Although the responsibilities are modified, Instructors in Training get hands-on experience working with children and teaching the skills. It’s a wonderful way to improve your own skills while giving back to the community.


To apply for either position, please complete the Intern Application and return it to info@cotef.org, or fax to 888-479-2481.
