Emory’s Annual Camp & Learning Expo is open to employees and family members of Emory University, Emory Healthcare, The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Expo 2013 will be similar to years’ past, boasting nearly 100 exciting summer camps and academic programs for children aged 5-17. Guest and vendor feedback from last year’s event has been incorporated into this year’s event with the addition of some less expensive camps and longer event hours. In addition to the camps and academic programs, the expo includes some other very helpful resources for parents and families including programs to teach teens to drive and prepare for college admissions tests. Representatives from area summer programs are scheduled to be onsite to answer questions and some offer discounts. Georgia Learning Resource Systems will be at the expo again this year with their summer directory for families with children with special needs.
Many of the programs participating in this year’s event offer Junior Counselor opportunities (Counselor in Training/CIT) and some even look for new hires for the summer. BrownRichards & Associates will be onsite completing free dependent care referrals in effort to help parents find additional summer programming and other types of dependent care options that are not available at the expo. The Emory WorkLife Resource Center again plans to raffle off host prizes to attendees of the event. All those hoping to win a raffle prize must sign in at the event. To qualify for a grand prize, you must be either an Emory employee or a LGS student. Light snacks and refreshments are available for guests. Admission is free.
Registration to attend Emory’s Camp & Learning Expo is not required; however in effort to help with the preparations for the event, the Emory WorkLife Resource Center asks you to let them know if you plan to attend – RSVP now!
