Karri Kennedy Hahn
My name is Karri Kennedy and I am proud to have worked for UNC Charlotte for the past 15 years--seven years as a career advisor for liberal arts, education, and humanities majors with the University Career Center, and the past eight with Extended Academic Programs as a Program Director for several continuing education certificates. I have directed Camps on Campus since Summer 2014 and am so proud of the reputation and commitment to excellence that this program demonstrates year after year. I love getting to know the campers and parents each year as well as working with our seasonal staff team who are all SUPER STARS!
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Organizational Communication and my Master of Arts in Student Affairs Administration from Ball State University and completed doctoral coursework and comprehensive examinations in Curriculum and Teaching/Educational Studies from the UNC Greensboro.
I am not only the Camps on Campus Program Director but I am also a parent and customer the program! My daughter Casie has been Camps on Campus camper since she was a rising 1st grader! I always approach program management with my “parent hat” on including how I approach recruitment and staffing, training, safety procedures, ensuring quality experiential learning, and also encouraging fun and friendships to help our campers create memorable experiences year after year!
My name is Kristy Wilson and I have worked for UNC Charlotte for two years as both an Implementation and Planning Specialist. Summer 2019 was my first summer working with Camps on Campus on an as-needed basis and I instantly fell in love and knew I wanted to become more involved! This summer I will take on more full-time and hands on role with camps and I cannot be more excited! I come to camps with years of experience in camps and after school enrichment, specializing in working with diverse student populations and special needs students.
I earned my Bachelor of Science and am currently persuing my Master of Arts in Instructional Design and Distance Education Administration both from East Carolina University.
One of my favoite parts of camp is watching the education, engagement and personal growth of our campers throughout the summer! We truly have some of the best instructors, counselors and staff out there and I know this will only continue to grow!
