Camp Woolman Counsies

For more information see our Camp Woolman section of the website. What makes Camp Woolman such a fun, memorable, and meaningful place to come each summer? Could it be being close to nature, the close connections we make with each other, the games, the songs, the love, or the good food? Is it the hikes we take through the forests & the mountains, or the leaps into Mel’s Pond?
Maybe its the skits, the silliness, or dressing up! It is all of these things that makes Camp Woolman beautiful and special, especially that which allows for all of this to arise. Who is it that is responsible for caring for this place & these campers? It is our  excellent, passionate, professional, and joyful team of dedicated staff! The terms “nature enthusiast,” “radically inclusive,” “goofball,” “education activist,” & “team player,” either apply to you, or fire you up to know that they will one day. You can handle a summer of outdoor activities, collaborating closely & intentionally with a small team of other like-hearted individuals. You know there’s always more to learn. You desire to continually strengthen your communication skills. Challenges excite you, possibly because they’re scary, possibly because you know that overcoming challenges is where growth happens. Most importantly, you look forward to supporting your campers, your team, and yourself in excelling this summer at Camp. Please check out our Camp Counselor (lovingly called our counsies) job description. Afterwards, go ahead & fill out our intake survey. If this opportunity sounds like a good fit for someone you know, consider passing this on to them!
