The Staff Experience
We’ve all had teachers, coaches and mentors that have touched our lives. Think back to these individuals and ask yourself why these people played such an important part in your life. We’re confident it is because they took an interest in you and pushed you to be the best you could be. As a counselor at Wayne, you will have the same opportunity to positively impact the lives of our campers!
As any good camp director will tell you, the key to a successful summer is the quality of the staff. Maintaining a beautiful facility and implementing a dynamic program is only meaningful if our staff supports the mission of providing a safe and caring environment for our campers. We consider the selection of our counselors to be our most important responsibility as directors. We select sensitive and enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to working with children. Our staff is composed of college and high school coaches, teachers, undergraduate and graduate students.
In addition to close interaction with our campers, you will work alongside an incredible staff, many of whom will become great friends. Our senior staff of educators, administrators and high school and college coaches, have years of camp experience and will be a valuable resource for you all summer long.
It is our hope that as the camp season comes to an end, you‘ll look back on your summer at Camp Wayne as “the best experience of your life.”
It takes an enthusiastic and dedicated team to make the magic of camp possible each summer. There are a variety of positions at Wayne, all of which are crucial to the success of each camp season. Many jobs require constant interaction with our campers, while others are more behind the scenes. Regardless of the job description, we appreciate the hard work that everyone brings to the team.
Counselor Specialists and General Counselors
Counselors become role models and leaders for the boys in their bunk. In addition to bunk responsibilities, counselors have opportunities to teach and coach at activities where they share their experience and expertise with our campers. By creating an environment where our campers love to learn and have fun, counselors are a vital part of our daily program.
Every age group at camp has a Group Leader. Group Leaders must have a great deal of camp experience and/or experience leading children and staff. The Group Leader supervises the campers and staff in his/her group and meets regularly with the head counselors and directors. Group Leaders are responsible for moving their group from activity to activity during the day and for overseeing the group’s evening activities.
Our support staff team is responsible for a number of key behind the scenes jobs to keep our program moving during the day. Jobs include food preparation, food service, laundry, cleaning, office support, and maintenance.
Health Center Staff
The health and safety of each and every person at camp is our number one priority. Our Heather Center is staffed by three Registered Nurses and one physician. In addition to dispensing medication, our nurses treat campers and staff 24 hours a day and are on-call for all health-related issues.
