Application Process

Each year The Polar Caves Park hires 30 seasonal employees, with most of the staff returning from the previous year.

Usually, we have around 5-15 openings each new season.

We normally only hire students that are 16 and older, but if the right 15-year-old applies we often will hire them as well.  

If you are interested, please download our application below. The best time to apply is late March to early May. Applications may be dropped off any day, but if it’s before the first weekend in May, please call first to make sure someone is available. While we open for the season in May, most positions don’t start until late June.

Since we are a seasonal business, employees are required to work most weekends.
