New for 2022: Summer Jobs & Internships
Finding applicants for summer positions has been challenging for many camp businesses. To facilitate matching camps with prospective counselors or leaders-in-training, ActivityHero will be inviting local students to the fair to get more information on available positions for 2022.
Camp Fair Exhibitors can indicate whether they are hiring high school students and be included on the Summer Jobs page on ActivityHero.com. This includes paid and volunteer (unpaid) positions.
The Camp Fair will be set-up in two different rooms within the Peery Family Center at Palo Alto High School. The small gym will have programs focusing on kids K-8 grades.
The dance studio will have programs for high school students, grades 9-12.
Attendees will have to pass through the small gym and dance studio to get free pizza and popcorn. We encourage exhibitors to have a small display or hands-on kids activity at your table to engage families.
Electricity is available to select tables for an extra $20 fee.
