During our overnight camps, we host a special “career night” for our campers. This evening provides a platform for campers to view a potential future in various STEM fields. They get to explore and ask questions about different science and research fields and perhaps learn about a new field they’ve never even heard of. Career Night is always popular with our campers.
Our counselors, all of whom are either studying or working in a STEM related field, host this evening. This allows our campers to get to know their counselors better as they ask questions and learn about their counselors STEM interests and experiences. Campers also learn about the diversity in STEM fields, education and degree programs, Christian colleges, and potential careers.
Research shows that 80% of college bound students haven’t chosen a major and the same percentage will switch their major at least once. And 37% of students will switch schools, leaving behind credits they’ve earned (and paid for!). And 40% of students take six years to complete their four-year degree, increasing their student debt by 70% (ouch!). We believe Career Night, combined with the hands-on activities and STEM teaching, can help with this by exposing campers to various fields of STEM and giving them guidance to pursue their passions and find their God-given career path.
