Salary: stipend $400/month, $200/pay period
Job Description: The Program Interns and Field Camp Interns will get exposure to a wide range of CFI’s adult and student field study programs in canyon country around Moab, UT. Programs take place in at our Professor Valley Field Camp, in National Parks, and on BLM, State, and Forest Service land.
The intern will be mentored by the Operations Manager and Head Naturalist Guide and gain experience in operational support, logistics, field teaching and guiding, maintenance & repairs, and office support. CFI programs take on a variety of forms from local day tours in the National Parks, to river trips, to multi-day outdoor school programs. The intern will work both under the direction of Trip Leaders and independently to be trained to lead half day tours on his/her own for adult and family visitors in Arches National Park and Prehistoric culture/rock art tours in canyons near Moab. These tours will involve driving vans, leading participants, and hiking short distances for interpretation programs. The intern will be trained in a wide range of topics related to the Colorado Plateau such as natural and cultural history, geology, and regional issues. The intern will also gain skills necessary for safe and effective group management. In addition to these field skills and duties, the intern should be prepared for learning and doing regular equipment repair, warehouse and commissary/food supply stocking and upkeep. Once trained, intern should be capable of problem solving and working independently. There will be a special project ( research/program development/management) during the internship based on intern interests and organization needs at the time.
Program Intern will focus on Half Day Tours, operational support, warehouse management, and program support, and will be housed in town in a co-ed bunkhouse. Field Camp Intern will focus on camp maintenance & upkeep, assisting in the kitchen, and assisting Naturalist-Guides with teaching/lessons, and will be housed at the camp in a wall-tent.

“Thank you for everything during my time at CFI. I found the program intern position to be fulfilling in a lot of ways, and I think that CFI’s programs are meaningful, rewarding and fun. Best of luck with your seasons to come!” Gemma Wallace,
