Counselors & Interns

One of the Summer Program’s goals is to open leadership opportunities for upper school and college students. The summer program offers paid and unpaid positions for people who love working with kids and enjoy creating a fun learning environment where all students feel valued.


Summer Program Counselors support summer faculty in facilitating pre-designed, hands-on summer camps at The Overlake School. Counselors are expected to communicate, motivate, and interact with youth in a positive manner during camp and activity time. Counselors will also design and lead activity time, supervise lunch, and collaborate with the other counselors and interns to create a fun and inclusive atmosphere for campers. They are the glue of the summer community, and their flexibility and positive attitudes are essential to creating a fun learning environment.

Counselor positions are paid positions that are open to current 11th graders (and older). The counselor application includes a cover letter, resume, and references who can speak to the applicant’s work experience(s) and leadership qualities. 


Interns are a vital part of Overlake’s Summer Program, as they support the teachers, counselors, and campers. Interns are unpaid positions; however, students receive service hours for their work in the program. Intern positions are open to current 9th and 10th graders.
