We have two camp programs that are located on 400 wooded acres in Wisconsin Dells: Camp Wawbeek and Respite Camp. Both camps are looking for counselors, program leaders, and support staff for the up coming summer camp season. As a counselor you would be responsible for working directly with the campers, assisting with personal care needs (toileting, dressing, bathing, feeding) and adapting recreation activities. Program leaders plan and facilitate activities in several different areas like arts & crafts, nature and the pool, making them adaptable for all campers to participate. Support staff members work in our kitchens as dietary and kitchen aids, office managers, or outfitters.
Camp Wawbeek serves people ages 7 and up with physical disabilities, cognitive delays, and campers on the autism spectrum. Campers who attend Camp Wawbeek must be able to function in a small group with a ratio of one counselor to two-three campers. Counselors work with two to three campers or with another counselor and three to five campers. Summer Camp Wawbeek staff members are contracted from May 29-July 27.
Respite Camp serves people ages 3 and up with more involved needs that have diagnoses of autism, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and behavior issues. Each camper has one counselor paired with them throughout the session. Summer Respite Camp staff members are contracted May 29-August 17.
AmeriCorps Members serve at both camps throughout the summer. Members engage in service at either Camp Wawbeek or Respite Camp and will receive a living stipend throughout the summer as well as an educational award at the end of the summer. Summer AmeriCorps Members start their service on May 23, and end either at the end of Wawbeek or at the end of Respite, depending on the camp they sign on to conduct their service.
