Counselors & Interns
Due to COVID-19, we are approaching Summer 2021 with a set of program modifications to ensure the health and safety of our campers, counselors, and teachers. We are planning to provide in-person camps while also preparing contingency plans if we cannot do so safely. We will post our camp schedule in early February, and registration opens on March 1.
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 leaning environment where all students feel valued.
Counselors work 30-40 hours per week throughout the summer. For Summer 2021, counselors must be available to work at least 4 of the 6 weeks from June 21 to July 30. Counselors organize activity time, support teachers in their individual camps, and help create a fun atmosphere through their own passion for learning. Counselor positions are part-time, paid positions. Counselor positions are open to anyone who has finished 11th grade (or older). Counselor positions are typically posted at the beginning of February and are filled on a rolling basis.
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 anyone who has finished 9th grade (or older). Interns typically work 3.5 hours per day (either the morning session or afternoon session, and most interns will work 1-3 weeks during the summer. Intern schedules are coordinated on a case-by-case basis.
The internship application will be posted in early February.
