SeaWorld Orlando is the premier marine adventure park. Over 80 million visitors enjoy its 200 acres of shows, rides and animals each year. Animal adventures include encounters with killer whales, dolphins, sea lions and stingrays. In addition, SeaWorld’s family programs include swimming with sharks, and sea lion and otter shows.
Each internship begins with two weeks of training, during which participants are assigned to a department and learn about the animals and camp procedures therein. Afterwards, interns work in the day camp with elementary and middle school students or the resident camp with middle and high school students. Full-time staffers supervise work with campers, including a variety of crafts, games and activities such as snorkeling and canoeing. Intern duties may include preparing for classes, registering campers, teaching classes and assisting camp management with daily operations.
Open to college students who have completed their sophomore year in good standing at a recognized academic institution and who are pursuing degrees in education, science or recreation. Teaching experience and a basic knowledge of marine life are helpful.
