INTERNSHIP PROGRESSION DETAILS

Camper
Camps are a great way to get into kayaking. A few years of kid camps is a great way to improve paddling, leadership, and risk management skills. This helps them find a hobby they enjoy while giving them an opportunity (not guaranteed) for future employment at eNRG Kayaking.

Shop Intern
For those interested in working on the water without much paddling experience or interest in getting into whitewater kayaking, we do offer some shop roles which build interpersonal skills.

Junior Intern
Junior interns are responsible for supporting the lead instructors before and during the camp. This includes camper supervision and preparing / cleaning equipment. This is an unpaid internship and is a great primer for improving the skills learned at kid camp.

The following requirements are general and may be altered based on the student applying: 
3 years of paddling experience
Past enrollment in discovery, adventure camp, and the kayak team
Displays good paddling, leadership, and risk management skills
At least 15 years of age

Senior Intern
Senior interns hold greater responsibility and are generally considered a second to the lead instructor they are working with. They are responsible for the same duties as a junior intern while also providing instruction and discipline. This is a paid internship and gives them the ability to have a part time summer job in the future. Payments may be received through trade.

The following requirements are general and may be altered based on the student applying: 
Completed at least 1 season as a Junior Intern
Current enrollment in the kayak team
Completed ACA Instructor Certification Course
Completed First Aid and CPR<br”>At least 16 years of age

Employee / Jr Instructor / Instructor
Once interns reach 18, they are eligible for full time or part time summer work. They will be responsible for shop rentals, tours, whitewater rafting, kid camps, and / or whitewater instruction based on their skill levels. Although not guaranteed, interns have the preexisting knowledge of eNRG Kayaking operations which helps them in the application process.
