      How to Get Internship Credit for Working at OSRUI

      For those of you looking to get even more out of being on staff at OSRUI, camp can count as an internship!! It’s a great way to make working at camp in coming summers a more viable and legitimate option for employment. For two summers, staff member Daniel Shore had the career center on his campus (at Bradley University) document his summer job at OSRUI as a psychology internship; he even got class credit for it!! Working with children, and particularly campers with special needs, qualified as preparation for becoming a psychologist. The first summer Daniel chose to register it as an internship and also pay for it to count for class credit; the next summer he simply had it registered as a returning paid internship (which looks great on a college transcript).  You don’t have to be a psychology major to make this work for you: Jewish studies, education/teaching, or even social work are other possibilities.
