WKU Camp & Recreation Job Fair


Update: We are grateful to all of the employers who participated in our 2020 job fair and hope you will join us again in 2021. Please check back for 2021 details. We hope to expand the event to include: Camp, Recreation, Sport & Tourism employers. This should draw upon a larger student audience which will benefit all involved. Thank you again!

 

The WKU Recreation Administration program is pleased to announce the reboot of its annual job fair. The Camp, Recreation, and Related Professions Job Fair is the perfect opportunity to recruit talented students looking for rewarding positions (part-time, full-time, internships, seasonal). Proceeds from this event support the WKU Recreation Administration program.

Camp and recreation agencies typically offer a variety of jobs in many different areas (i.e. sports, recreation, event planning and management, youth leadership, music, art, technology, ministry, recreation/sport skills instruction, aquatics, equestrian, etc.). This diversity greatly increases the likelihood of students finding a position that fits their interests and complements their area of study.
