Shelley Vohr Spends her Summer at the Exclusive Island of Ambergris Cay in the Turks & Caicos

AMBERGRIS CAY, TURKS & CAICOS, British West Indies, May 28 /PRNewswire/ – Shelley Vohr, thirteen, has an exciting summer ahead of her. Shelley will be helping her father, Neal Vohr, the interim club manager of Turks & Caicos Sporting Club on the private island of Ambergris Cay. Dubbed as THE COOLEST SUMMER JOB IN THE WORLD, at any age, Shelley is actively blogging about her experiences on the private island through videos, photos and anecdotes to be shared around the world!

Shelley’s stint on Ambergris Cay began Tuesday, May 26, and will last just shy of a month through June 18. Her responsibilities include working with campers during the summer Kids’ Eco-Camp series, week-long camps for children of all ages featuring a variety of environmental projects and activities to help educate the next generation in the study of environmental science. Shelley also maintains the equipment at the Environmental Learning Center, keeping a watchful eye on the health and wellbeing of the ELC’s aquarium through monitoring its salinity levels. The internship also includes assisting with the Millennium Seed Bank Collection project, in collaboration with The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, as well as shadowing Ambergris Cay’s Concierge team and acting as a Junior Ambassador for The Club.

Even though Shelley spends time cleaning the beach and maintaining the aesthetic of the tennis courts, the summer won’t be just all work and no play! When asked what she is most excited about, Shelley said, “I really can’t wait to start playing tennis and observing the iguanas.”

Shelley is thirteen years old and will be entering 8th grade at Ashley Hall in Charleston, SC. This is her first summer internship, and she has future professional dreams of being a marine biologist. Turks & Caicos Sporting Club looks forward to fostering Shelley’s dream by sharing the unique flora and fauna native to the island of Ambergris Cay. Shelley’s adventures in Turks & Caicos are definitely preparing her for an exciting future in marine biology!
