Counselors & Interns
Due to COVID-19, there were changes to this year’s Summer Program. In these uncertain times, we're not sure what next year will look like, but we can say Summer Program 2020 was a resounding success in the face of adversity, running 14 Virtual Camps + Kits for over 80 students. If you're interested in Summer Program 2021, feel free to check out the posted camp descriptions from last year. We will update with more information in January of 2021.
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 20-30 hours per week throughout the entire summer. They organize community 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). Please go to the Employment Portal to view specific counselor positions within the program. 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.
