  • Recreation Therapy Student Looking for Internship

    Hello CPRS RT Section Members

    I received this email request this morning. I hope that one of our section members can help her out. Please contact her directly.

    Thank you.




    Hi John, my name is Anna Chambers. I am the Camp Director at Easterseals Camp Harmon and am looking to fulfill a Recreational Therapy internship in order to fulfill my degree in RT (this is the last thing I need in order to graduate). Does any of your organization have a Rec Therapist on staff that could oversee me/is this something that has been done before?

    Look forward to hearing back from you,

    Thanks in advance!
