Although staff receive a stipend, Camp STAR isn’t just a summer job. It’s a unique training opportunity for students interested in pursuing careers in clinical/school/counseling/sports psychology, special education, social work, pediatric medicine, or any child-oriented career path. 

  • Undergraduate Students – receive an intensive training and field work experience rarely available at the undergraduate level. 
  • Graduate Students – receive training in evidence-based treatments and accrue over 200 clinical contact hours! Hours are supervised and may count towards departmental requirements (check with your academic department to determine if this could apply to you).
