"I loved interning at The Children's Museum of the Upstate, and it has been the best work environment I have experienced so far! It was such a pleasure to come in and feel welcomed and included by all the staff. I have told many of my classmates about how great of an experience it was developing programs for a children's museum, and how it has inspired me in my own lesson planning for school to be more creative, explorative, and inventive!"
~ Camille, Educational Programming Intern, Spring 2018
