"If you are a college student seeking adventure, I definitely recommend working for GTLC this summer! Every day was a bucket list day in Grand Teton National Park while I worked there. How many college kids say they got to go cliff jumping after work?!" Charlotte, Louisiana, Colter Bay Marina
"Living and working in Grand Teton National Park has elevated my life and is truly an experience unlike any other. Some of my most incredible friendships and fondest memories were formed during my time spent there. Some of my favorites were kayaking in lakes at the base of the dramatic mountains, hiking the most stellar trails I’ve ever been on, backpacking with incredible people and star gazing with tremendous views of the Milky Way. Living in the park is an inspiring journey that has made me more mindful, appreciative and passionate about life." Stephanie, Connecticut, Flagg Ranch
