During the fall, Eagle Mount offers Aquatic Therapy, Ice Skating and Therapeutic Riding programs. For students in marketing, communications or nonprofit management, fall is an excellent time to intern as our fiscal year begins in October, our major fundraising event occurs in November, and our year-end fundraising initiatives are strong.
During the winter, we offer Aquatic Therapy, Alpine and Nordic Skiing. Skiing internships are offered from the beginning of January through the end of March. As a ski intern you will be a part of the Bridger Bowl Ski Program with some opportunities to work with the cross country and Big Sky ski programs. Advanced skiing skills are required and you must have your own ski gear.
Summer internships are offered from June through September. The life of a summer intern can include being a part of the Adventure Days, Equine, Swim, Saturday Night Out, Big Sky Kids and Horticulture Programs. We will want to know about your skills and experience in more than one of the activities featured in these programs.
Therapeutic Recreation Internships
NCTRC requires that TR internships be 12 weeks at 480 hours. A CTRS on staff will supervise your internship. Eagle Mount is a community adaptive recreation site. Our therapeutic processes are not as formal as a clinical site but we still have all the steps in place. You will get a chance to perform assessments, plan and implement lessons and/or programs, document progress, and conduct program evaluations. Interns will also conduct a case study, in which you are working one-on-one with a participant, performing and documenting all steps of the process. NCTRC exam preparation is available.
