About the
The Great Wolf Summer Hospitality Internship Program is a 10-week program that provides college students with meaningful experience that compliments their current coursework. Through an experiential and structured approach to learning, interns will gain real-life experience in the hospitality and entertainment industry. The program will include a job shadow week to provide exposure and learning of other disciplines across the brand. At the end of the program, participants will also complete a term project and present to the lodge leadership team. Upon successful completion of the program, interns will be considered for future internships, fulltime positions, and/or Great Wolf Management Development Program (MDP).
