The Career Development Center is hosting a Summer Camp Job Fair on Jan. 29 and 30.
“The Summer Camp Job Fair brings job and internship opportunities for the students here at ASU,” Career Development Assistant Adra Enos said., A summer camp position can be beneficial to many different kinds of students from different majors.
“Students can acquire a whole new skill set and gain confidence in themselves by working with others and having fun,” Enos said.
Working at a summer camp would be a fun experience because one would get to work with kids and participate in many different activities, sophomore Ilyssa Kisa said.
“Some positions involve working with animals, others with teaching art to the camp goers, and some with food preparation,” Enos said.
There are nine summer camps registered to come to ASU to hire students, Enos said. They are located in different areas of Texas such as the Dallas/Fort Worth area and the Hill country.
“If a student is interested in interning at one of the summer camps they need to get it approved by the dean of their department so that they can earn credit while working,” Enos said.
Each camp is different and the students should do their research on them before making a decision to work at one, Enos said.
“I think working at a summer camp would be very beneficial to me because of my major in Education,” Kisa said.
The camp representatives will be able to answer any questions a potential student worker might have, Enos said.
“While working at a summer camp the student will be housed at the camp and given meals,” she said.
Working at a summer camp is a great way to do something you enjoy and get paid for it, Enos said. “It sounds like a nice way to spend the summer,” Kisa said.
The summer camp jobs can go from part of the summer to the full three months depending on what the individual student is willing to do, Enos said.
“The application process is different for each camp, some of them will stay here on campus to conduct interviews with students they believe have the potential to work for them,” Enos said.
If anyone is interested in finding a fun and beneficial job they should come to the Summer Camp job fair, Enos said.
