Western Illinois University Summer Camp Job Fair

Thursday, 23 January 2020 - 11:00am

All times local unless stated differently below.

The WIU Summer Camp Job Fair has been an annual tradition for more than 30 years! Each year, day and resident camps are invited to visit the WIU 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 40+ camp directors and more than 200 students. The job fair opens with a Director-Student social the evening prior to the fair. This social allows camp directors to engage with fellow camp directors as well as a select group of students specifically interested in the camping field, and WIU faculty. A buffet dinner (pasta bar) is provided and prepared by the RPTA-Hospitality Management faculty and students. The select group of students invited to this social have backgrounds and interests in outdoor education, recreation, food service, and natural resources. The job fair is held on Thursday, January 23, 11am to 3pm and is open to everyone on campus. The registration fee is $75, which includes the dinner, social, job fair table, and lunch for one camp representative. Each additional camp representative is an added fee of $25. We look forward to your visit!
