Where are True Friends Interns located?

Most True Friends Interns work at the Camp Friendship Headquarters in Annandale, Minnesota (near Saint Cloud MN). However, we do have a few intern positions out of the Camp Eden Wood office in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and some positions can work remotely with regular check-in meeting in Eden Prairie.

What happens after I complete my True Friends Internship?

At True Friends, communication and setting expectations is key! Thus, it is important to note that internship positions do not turn into staff positions at True Friends.If a position becomes available at the time an intern is working at True Friends, we would consider that individuals as we would any other applicant applying externally.
