Day and resident camps are invited to visit campus to interact with students, including a large number from the Chicagoland area. Attending the fair provides you with a wonderful opportunity to recruit students from a wide variety of majors, and to network with fellow camp directors. Last year’s attendees had the opportunity to interact with 49 camp directors and more than 250 students. We expect this year’s Summer Camp Job Fair to be even larger.
