If you are passionate about building your career in Education (Early Childhood, Elementary, Secondary, etc.), Sports Management, or Outdoor Recreation we want to get to know you!

We provide our staff with two different ways to earn college credit while working at Tyler Hill Camp.

1. Earn Three College Credits While Working at Camp

Earn three transferable college credits, while making a difference as a mentor, coach, friend, teacher, leader, and hero through Gratz College (Americans only). This course is geared for rising High School Juniors and Seniors and Freshmen and Sophomores in College. For High School Students it acts as a college application builder, highlighting success with college courses. While for College Students it can tick off general elective requirements, off Campus or is a good way to bank credits for Students planning on studying abroad. What better way to earn credits than doing it while working at camp!?

Through this course staff will:

  • have a better understanding of informal education.
  • have a better understand their own role as informal educators.
  • learn how informal education in a camp setting has the potential to mitigate perceived education gaps.
  • develop their own view of informal education and how to incorporate that in their roles at camp.
  • reflect on their own learning and growth as part of the camp experience

The cost is $750 for 3 transferable credits.  Please check with your school prior to enrolling

2. Or alternatively, Create an Internship For College Credit

 To do this, you must:

  • be currently enrolled in a University, College, or Technical School.
  • contact your college advisor in advance and ask them if you can use your summer camp experience as a practicum, internship, or other course credit.
  • complete the course, practicum or internship per your college’s parameters and complete your summer employment.
