The hallmark of a W*K counselor is the enthusiasm, energy and care they bring to the creation of a summer community in which children can thrive. It’s a rewarding job that will stretch you.
We want you to thrive as a counselor. To accomplish this goal, Camp Wingate*Kirkland has set up a strong network of leaders to support the staff. There is a lodge leader assigned to each age group to serve as a sounding-board for ideas and a trouble-shooter for problems.
This leader also runs a bunk meeting with each lodge weekly, to assess its condition and bring any concerns to the forefront so they can be resolved. In the daily program, support comes in the form of specific area directors (waterfront, arts, drama, athletics, etc.) and a general program director. These leaders can help plan a period, get resources, give feedback on teaching – make your program a success. Of course, Will and Sandy are always available as directors to discuss concerns and solve problems as well!
