DURHAM, N.H. – Want to work outdoors this summer? Come to the University of New Hampshire’s annual Outdoor Jobs and Camp Fair Thursday, Feb. 17, 2011, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Granite State Room of the Memorial Union Building at UNH. More than 20 employers representing non-profit outdoor and environmental agencies, commercial outfitters, summer camps and international travel companies will attend this year’s fair to recruit summer and full-time employees. Some representatives conduct on-the-spot interviews.

The fair, which is free and open to the public, attracts more than 300 students and others from diverse academic fields, including outdoor education, nursing, natural resources, recreation management, business, and equine sciences. Attendees can win raffle prizes donated by local businesses.

The outdoor education department, in cooperation with Tents for Haiti, will be collecting new and used tents in working order to help those in need of shelter. Donations will be accepted during the fair.
Seniors in the outdoor education option of the department of kinesiology at UNH plan and conduct the event, including registration, marketing, sponsorship, and operations, as one of their culminating projects before they graduate.
