The Camp Jeanne d’Arc Archive is a space to preserve and research the ephemera, photographs, and personal and collective history of Camp Jeanne d’Arc, Ruth Israel McIntyre, and alumni of Camp Jeanne d’Arc. In its early stages, the Archive’s main goal from summer 2021 until summer 2023 is to sift through 100 years of photographs, records, letters, and any information found in the Chalet attic that pertains to Camp Jeanne d’Arc and Ruth Israel McIntyre. 

During summer 2021, the CJDA Archivists are looking for an intern to spend the summer at camp. Under direct supervision of the Archivists, the intern will create catalogue entries for new materials. This includes organizing ephemera, scanning items, tagging them with tags created by the Archivists, transcribing materials, and storing objects for longevity.  Interns will also develop interview questions and record interviews with alumni. The internship will take place for 20 hours a week. In addition, the intern will participate in camp life by being a cabin counselor and helping with activity periods when they are not scheduled to be in the archive.

 

If you are currently enrolled in college, there is a possibility to earn 3 college credits for your work this summer.  This will be discussed on a case by case basis with the applicant and the Archivists.
