Camp Adventure Child & Youth Services

Camp Adventure Child & Youth Services is a student-run organization that blends theory and practice in the delivery of programs and services to children and youth. Headquartered at the University of Northern Iowa and hosted at California State University, Chico through the Department of Recreation, Hospitality, and Parks Management; Camp Adventure offers students an opportunity to plan and implement model school-age services and youth development programs, develop leadership and management skills, enhance one's global awareness and promote cultural sensitivity. We offer a full line of school-age and youth service programs directed primarily toward U.S. military installations. International in scope, Camp Adventure Child & Youth Services have been successfully implemented in Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Bahrain, South Korea, Japan, Russia, Hawaii, Key West, New Orleans, Boston, and many more!

Camp Adventure offers students opportunities year round, with Fall/Spring Internships and Summer Programs, in positions such as Child Development Interns, Day Camp Counselors, and Aquatics Counselors.
