Teen Workreation

Teens, ages 13 to 16*, can volunteer with Parks and Recreation to work with kids in their neighborhood parks this summer! If you are interested in getting on-the-job training in the Parks and Recreation field, we may have a volunteer position for you.

We know teens are busy in the summer. You may choose in advance the number of hours you’d like to volunteer per week, plus, we’ll do our best to schedule your volunteer hours on the days and times that work for you.

Teen volunteers are individuals serving of their own accord, gaining valuable job experience, and making new friends. 

Work with Parks & Recreation Staff as a:

  • Jr. Camp Counselor
  • Jr. MORE Facilitator
  • Jr. Lifeguard*
  • Jr. Swim Instructor/WSI*
*Jr. Lifeguard and Jr. Swim Instructor can begin at age 12 after completing the American Red Cross training program offered at Splash Montana. 

olunteer positions include working at Splash Montana, or assisting youth camp staff with sports, outdoor adventures, games, activities, arts and crafts and more as a Jr. Camp Counselor and Jr. MORE Facilitator.

een Workreators will receive valuable trainings like CPR and financial literacy, plus earn great job experience. Teens will have a chance to earn incentives (depending on hours worked) such as a pizza party at Splash Montana, rock climbing and more! Volunteers can participate in a 1-week outdoor leadership camp for free!
