The PERA Club (Project Employees Recreation Association) is the private recreation facility for employees of the Salt River Project, Phoenix’s major water and power utility. The center sits on 83 scenic acres and includes outdoor fitness trails, a softball field, swimming pool and tennis courts. The country club is also the setting for sports leagues and parties, as well as a venue for family, corporate and social events.
Interns work in the recreation department, meeting the needs of club members. They work on the aquatic program, fitness center, employee store, food and beverage preparation and service, educational classes and special events. Interns also oversee and plan social activities and supervise part-time employees. They take part in special customer service and stress management training to prepare them for the demands of the program.
