Camp Winadu is a seven week summer sports camp for boys. We have over 350 boys in our program each summer, with all of them staying for the full summer. Approximately 125 counselors live in the cabins with the campers. We also have an experienced administrative staff. The camp has a full office staff, kitchen and dining hall staff and infirmary staff consisting of five nurses and a doctor.
Our staff members come from all over the US and Canada, as well as from overseas countries, including Australia, New Zealand and England. Each staff member has completed at least one year of college. Many of these staff members are studying some form of an education or recreation related program in school, although this is by no means a precondition for employment.
The camp is located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in the very western part of the state. We are approximately 3 hours by car to both New York City and Boston, MA. Other nearby attractions include the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA (1-1/2 hours away) and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY (3 hours away). The camp is only 5 minutes from downtown Pittsfield and within 20 minutes of camp are shopping malls, night clubs and other camps (including Camp Danbee, our sister camp). Staff have an opportunity to visit these places on one of 5 days off (one each during the middle 5 weeks of the summer). Local rental car companies offer discounts to staff members and, by carpooling, staff can inexpensively enjoy all that our area has to offer.
Our campers come from a relatively homogeneous population. Over 300 of them are from the NY/NJ metropolitan area. Others travel to camp from Florida, California and even from as far away as the Dominican Republic. Campers come from a variety of families who are looking for a safe place for their son(s) to grow and learn, both as individuals and as athletes. Winadu provides them with a warm, nurturing environment that has a truly professional sports program. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
