Florida College summer camps are the biggest recruiting tool for the college. With 22 camps across the country, the challenge is making the camps feel connected to campus.
A Camp Friend is an ambassador for Florida College at each camp. They walk into a campground full of strangers, suffer mosquito attacks, are pelted by dodgeballs, live out of a suitcase all summer because they want to invest in campers’ lives. Florida College is special because of the relationships developed on campus, and Camp Friends seek to mirror that experience at camp.
This spring, these 20 students will undergo a training process with the admissions team equipping them to answer questions about Florida College, effectively work with their group and ultimately help each volunteer camp director in whatever way possible. This is a truly unique summer job—meeting and recruiting the next generation of Falcons.
