Work Experience Program
This summer, the Calgary Board of Education, the Calgary Separate School District and the Rockyview School Division are providing a fun and exciting Work Experience program to Calaway Park team members, who are high school students! This program allows students to earn high school credits as they gain valuable work experience at Calaway Park during the season. The program is offered at three levels: Work Experience 15, 25 and 35. Students earn 5 credits for every 125 hours they work. These credits are then applied to the student’s high school diploma.
