Meet Over 60 Summer Camp Employers on Sunday, March 11 at the UCLA L.A. Summer Camp Fair
On Sunday, March 11 at UCLA there will be a summer camp expo taking place where over 60 camp representatives will be taking to families about their available summer camp options for kids.
It's important to note this isn't a formal job fair, but at the same time, if you're looking for a summer job, it's an opportunity you won't want to miss because you can introduce yourself to the various camp directors and to learn about possible job opportunities.
Now, just a quick-heads up.
Camp folks are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet, But while visiting the various camp booths, please be considerate and cognizant of the fact the camp's main priority for attending the camp fair is to recruit new campers. As long as they have little extra time and aren't talking with parents, they should certainly be happy to speak with you about available job opportunities this summer.
The Camp Fair takes place Sunday, March 11 at the Sunset Canyon Recreation Center on the campus of UCLA. The address is 111 Easton Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90024. Admission is free, but you might want to grab a free ticket ahead of time just in case.
See you at the Camp Fair!
