Find a Summer Camp or a Summer Job at UNH Camp Fair Feb. 14

DURHAM, N.H. – More than 35 summer camps and other outdoor programs will share their summer offerings with Seacoast-area parents and youth at the University of New Hampshire’s annual Summer Camp and Outdoor Job Fair Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013. From 4 to 6 p.m., in the Granite State Room of the Memorial Union Building. Representatives from a range of programs will be available to meet with parents and prospective campers.

Earlier that day, employers from these programs – which include nonprofit outdoor and environmental agencies, commercial outfitters, summer camps, and international travel companies – will meet with potential employees. The job fair runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., also in the Granite State Room. Employers will recruit life guards, nurses, wilderness trip leaders, and specialists in arts and crafts, drama, ropes courses, rock climbing, paddling, backpacking, mountain biking, and more. Some employers conduct on-the-spot interviews, and prospective employees are encouraged to bring their resumes.

The fair, which is free and open to the public, last year attracted more than 500 students and others from diverse academic fields; some were offered jobs at the fair. Attendees can win raffle prizes donated by local businesses.

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.
