Head Start Basketball Camps Internship Program
Head Start Basketball is proud to announce our new internship program for the 2017 summer camp season. Head Start Basketball Camp interns will be a critical part of the camp team. The internship program is designed to provide an opportunity for interns to grow and learn from experienced Head Start Basketball Camp Staff Members. The internship program is open to boys and girls entering grades 8, 9 & 10 in the fall of 2017. After completing the voluntary internship, interns will have the opportunity to apply for a paid Head Start Basketball Camp staff position in the summer prior to their 11th grade year. The goal of this experience is to give our interns the opportunity to develop a working knowledge of the camps while assisting the staff in creating a positive camp environment for the players in attendance.
