Internship Opportunities

Interning with Vermont State Parks is a great way to gain on-the-job experience and a give back to the community.

Photography & Videography Internships

Travel to Vermont State Parks, take digital photographs or videos of parks, campsites, visitors, recreational activities and more!

You set your schedule and what part of the state you want to cover. Minimum participation is 20 photography hours between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

This is an unpaid internship, but we can offer you perks such as free camping, day passes, and park merchandise. And besides, you'll be helping out Vermont Parks. You must provide your own camera equipment and transportation. A background check is required. This internship can be tied to an academic internship if desired. To apply please send resume, letter of interest and samples of your work to rochelle.skinner@vermont.gov.

Do you have an internship idea? If you have an internship idea that you'd like to pursue that would benefit both yourself and the parks system -- pitch it to us! We'd be happy to consider it. Email rochelle.skinner@vermont.gov.
