The state of Maine, is more than a destination – it’s an experience that will take your breath away. In summer, there’s no better place to be than in Maine. From the beaches to the mountains, there’s so much to explore, and enjoy during your free time.
Salary for the summer is $3,000 – $4,000 depending on experience, and Skylemar would also provide housing, meals and travel expenses. Internship credits are offered as well. Most educational institutions require prior approval before the start of an internship. Check with your institution to be sure this opportunity meets any requirements.
