Volunteers and Internships
Volunteers are an essential component in the overall maintenance and day-to-day operations at Sandy Point State Park. Volunteers may commit to a weekly or monthly schedule or help on an as-needed basis. Schedules are flexible and no amount of time donated is too small. Many of the bigger projects are scheduled for the evenings or on the weekends so that working volunteers and students may participate. If you are interested in volunteering at Sandy Point State Park, please call 410-974-2149.
Sandy Point State Park also offers a variety of unpaid internships for motivated students. Opportunities are available in several areas, including interpretation, office management, concessions, maintenance, natural resource management, trail management, Spanish language and cultural adaptations, park operations, and sports management.
Internships are available throughout the year and are unpaid. Students are expected to perform at least 50 hours of service, according to a flexible schedule. Internships may be conducted during block semesters, over the summer, or during the winter.
Interested applicants should send a resume, cover letter, and three character references to the Volunteer Coordinator. Applicants will be required to complete a volunteer application and student internship program application. The selection process will begin after all required materials are received and the applicant will be notified in advance of the requested internship.
