Challenge Course Intern
The Cispus Challenge Course utilizes interns to prevent the course from stagnating. Interns
bring a fresh perspective and serve as outside reviewers. Interns also provide current academic experience and are an infusion of energy who give opportunity for management to “practice what we preach” in the sense of maintaining an open working environment.

Internships are approximately three months long, beginning with training. The primary focus is on group facilitation of our challenge course. Beyond the learning and needs of the course, the internship is directed based on interests. The Challenge Course managers serve to provide guidance and support.

If you are in the Northwest Area we highly recommend a visit to the Cispus site. We are available to schedule a site visit for observation, a tour and/or an interview. It is our goal to match the challenge course, the place of Cispus, and the people of Cispus with the intern’s person, goals, and interests.

Our goal is to provide a worthwhile, enjoyable internship and positive learning environment.
The intern will be able to provide quality facilitation for sixth-grade through college age
groups. The intern will have thorough understanding of each element (gradients, variations, frames) clear understanding of opportunities in the experiential education field and enough exposure to the experiential education field to make good career decisions.
The intern will be taught to bring the highest level of professionalism to the field and will be
given appropriate space and support for personal growth. The intern will be given opportunity to explore the Challenge Course and its components (maintenance, inspection, construction, ethics, dealing with conflict and program development).
