Indy Parks is Hiring for Summer

As we start to feel a slightly warm breeze in the air this spring, all of us at Indy Parks are preparing to bring you a great summer experience. Throughout the summer, we offer swimming, day camps, free concerts, a free meal program for children and hundreds of programs. We couldn’t make all of this happen without our dedicated staff.

We are hiring for hundreds of positions, including lifeguards, camp counselors, food program coordinators, facility attendants, cashiers, stage technicians and more. Pay ranges from $13-$18.75/hr.

This year, we are offering a sign-on bonus for all seasonal employees between $250-$500 for those who apply and complete required training on or before May 5 and work 100 hours.

Lifeguards, $15/hr
For many of us, a hot summer day at the pool with our friends and family is one of the greatest summer memories we have as a youth. For our pools to open, we need to have enough lifeguards on hand. At Indy Parks, we provide our lifeguards with training in basic life support, CPR and first aid to ensure that every family has the safest experience.

Free Lifeguard Train-Up Program
If you’re hoping to become a lifeguard but need some extra assistance in passing the required skills test, sign-up for our free Lifeguard Train-Up program this year! You will be paired with a current lifeguard who will help you attain the skills to be able to pass the test.
We encourage everyone who is 16 and over to apply for the listed positions above. As well as our seasonal positions, we also have positions open for full-time year-round staff at various parks or in admin positions.
