Guest Programs: Sleepovers

The Guest Programs: Sleepover Program intern will learn the key components of creating educational and engaging guest experiences as it relates to Sleepovers, one of Georgia Aquarium’s premium experiences. Interns will shadow management and the Sleepover team leaders to develop an understanding of hospitality, educate guests of various ages and knowledge levels about our living collection, and execute Sleepover programming. As interns gain experience, they will have the opportunity to create, plan and implement educational and age-appropriate programming and activities that meet set learning objectives for Girl Scouts or Adults-Only sleepovers. Interns will also assist with administrative duties, meet with local community partners and other duties as assigned. At the end of the internship, the intern will learn the fundamentals of hospitality, interpretive methods and guest experience while completing a semester-long project.
