Low-Cost Summer Camp Help

by on
in HR Management,Human Resources

The HR department at AstraZeneca’s U.S. headquarters helps employees who are parents line up summer camps for their kids by hosting a “camp fair” every spring.

The Wilmington, Del.-based pharmaceutical company invites representatives of 35 to 40 local camps of all flavors, including academics, sports, theater arts, applied arts, computers, museums, parks and outdoor recreation, as well as special-needs camps.

AstraZeneca promotes the fair a couple months in advance through broadcast e-mails to all employees and with posted notices in break rooms and department meeting sites.

Parent/employees love the fair because it saves them time and effort. It also makes them less likely to spend hours of company time researching  summer camps on the Web.

To find accredited camps in your area, check into the American Camp Association (www.acacamps.org), the National Camp Association (www.summercamp.org) and KidsCamps (www.kidscamps.com), or tap into your local government's human services and community outreach for child-care resources and referrals.
