Special Education Summer 15 Jobs for RU Students

Dear Roosevelt University Special Education Students:

My name is Lisa Elder. I am the Assistant Director of the Recreation Therapy Department at Bradford Woods in Martinsville, Indiana.  Bradford Woods is Indiana University's Outdoor Center (housed within the Recreation, Park, and Tourism Studies Department) and supported by the Riley Children’s Foundation and Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

Bradford Woods operates 10 weeks of summer camp for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses including campers with Down syndrome, autism, cancer, sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy, cranial facial anomalies, hearing loss, various physical disabilities, rare genetic disorders and muscular dystrophy.

We hire a staff of 80+ individuals and are currently recruiting for the summer of 2015. Bradford Woods has proven to be an excellent opportunity for students in the fields of Special Education.  You will receive hands-on experience and extensive training.  

Because of the strong therapeutic recreation mindset of Bradford Woods, it is my desire to fill our summer camp positions with people who see the need and importance of therapeutic activities and adaptive recreation. Please apply for our Cabin Head and Cabin Staff positions for the summer 2015 at Bradford Woods.  We seek to not only provide a great experience for our campers, but also want to help college students develop their skills and professional philosophies while also gaining knowledge of numerous populations of campers in a high energy camp setting.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail or call me personally at or 765-349-1086 x5213, or visit our website at

Thank you for your time,

Lisa Elder, CTRS
