Summer Practicum or Internship - Weight Loss Camp

I received this message from Ms. Joanna Mattaliano, an Exercise Science alumna, for a  Summer 2016 Internship or Practicum opportunity. For what it's worth, I was also employed at this camp many years ago:

JMU Kinesiology Undergrads! I would like to share with you all a fun and different opportunity to obtain your credits for practicum/internship. While I was an undergrad at JMU I completed my internship hours at Camp Pennbrook, and all girls weight loss camp ages 8-22. I enjoyed working at the camp so much I continued to work there the following 2 summers. If you are looking for a rewarding way to spend your summer this is a great opportunity. The camp is located in Newtwon, PA. General counselor positions are open as well as
specialist positions in sports such as softball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, etc and Group Fitness teaching opportunities, specifically Zumba instruction. While working at this camp I have held various roles between general counselor, fitness instructor, and Group Leader. I Highly recommend these openings if you are interested in personal training, obesity prevention or wellness as your future career path. If you have any questions or any interest feel free to contact me by email at
