Summer Interns

Each year the Sandy Hook Foundation funds spring, summer, or fall intern positions at Sandy Hook through the National Park Service and Student Conservation Association.   These interns work in the Interpretation and Natural Resources departments for varying lengths of time each year.


The Division of Interpretation interns perform a variety of tasks including staffing the Visitorís Center, the Sandy Hook Museum, giving tours of Battery Potter and weekday tours of the Sandy Hook Lighthouse, and also conducting the weekend Clean Beach/Healthy Beach program, where visitors are contacted as they leave the park to talk about the park's carry in/carry out program. The interns also serve as roving contacts, walking on the beach or in the fort district providing information to visitors.
