Internships in Delaware State Parks: Free Housing and Stipend

Delaware State Parks is now accepting applications for 2014 Spring, Summer, Fall, and year round internship positions. Our internship program offers a stipend and free housing.

Many of our internships are in majors not regularly associated with Parks and Recreation and have some great benefits in addition to career exploration and field learning. For example, your education students might not consider parks for a possible internship, yet everyday our environmental educators and summer camp counselors are working with children delivering educational programing, performing research and coordination.
