Most counselors at Winadu have dual roles. They are counselors living in cabins with the boys and specialists teaching in one or more of our activity areas. Counselors work under two supervisors -- the Group Leader, who oversees all aspects of a particular age group, and the Area Head, who oversees the activity area in which a counselor is teaching. Our Group Leaders and Area Heads are teachers and coaches who have tremendous experience working with kids. They provide their staff with a wonderful set of resources and experience in working with our campers.

Counselors must come to Winadu with a true love of children, a high level of patience and a solid work ethic. Working with kids is one of the greatest experiences in the world and comes with tremendous rewards. Working at Winadu can give you a great feeling of satisfaction as you help kids grow, but this comes only with a lot of hard work.

How Winadu helped in my Career and/or Major?
 My experience at Camp Winadu was amazing. I met so many different and beautiful people. I made connections that will last lifetimes and I will always be grateful for the opportunity. The things I learned and experienced at camp helped me make a decision on what I wanted to do for a career and helped me grow as a person. After my first summer at Winadu, I knew I wanted to work with the youth in the future. I was given the opportunity to interact with kids from different backgrounds and staff from all over the world. The time I had at camp helped me transition into my current job working in an elementary school setting. I feel more comfortable doing my job because of what I was exposed to during camp.

Favorite Winadu memory: was when I went to Boston for a few days with the Upper Warrior Division. It was my first time traveling to Boston and it was extra fun with the kids. I went to my first Red Sox game, browsed through all the cool shopping spots, went paintballing and so much more. It was a great time.
