The position of cabin counselor is Camp Walt Whitman's epitome of a Renaissance person. Our cabin counselors are invaluable staff members who spend their whole day with their cabin. They are role models who assist and motivate campers whether trying to learn the butterfly stroke at the pool or listening to their concerns about an issue or idea. Throughout the day cabin counselors participate in their cabins activities and do everything in their power to make each of their campers' summer the most memorable yet. Our counselors possess patience and enthusiasm that they offer to their campers.
Unit Leaders have multidimensional responsibilities within their cabin groups. This position demands organization, creativity and enthusiasm. Because of their organizational experience they act as a liaison between staff members in 2-4 cabins, campers and Area Directors. Unit Leaders are a terrific resource for campers and counselors alike, as well as parents.
Our Area Directors are enthusiastic, creative and energetic individuals who have the ability to manage large groups of people. Area Directors are responsible for 20-30 staff members and 100 campers. This position requires the AD to help plan and facilitate orientation, ongoing area training, planning group events with the assistance of Unit Leaders, problem solve with counselors and campers individually, and talk with parents.
