PARK SERVICE SEEKING 20 TEENS FOR WORK CAMP

May 16, 2003 – The National Park Service is recruiting teen-agers to participate in its Youth Conservation Camp on St. Croix this summer, according to Superintendent Joel Tutein.
The camp, which runs from June 16 to Aug. 15, offers paid positions for participants to work at any of St. Croix's three national parks. Tutein said students will primarily be doing maintenance work such as painting and cutting grass — but also will get to enjoy snorkeling and other fun activities.
The federally funded camp is in its 10th year, Tutein said. The park service is looking to hire 20 students, 10 male and 10 female, ages 15 to 18, he said, and will likely also recruit three college students to manage the camp work teams.
Applications are available at Fort Christiansvaern and are due by May 26, Tutein said.
