WORK AT WICO! Join us for our 100th Summer! <- Click here!
A summer at Wico will change you. We’re a community that isn’t afraid to take safe risks and be ourselves. Oh yeah, we like to have fun too.
As a camp counselor at Wico, you will live in a cabin with 6-12 campers and 2-3 adults and work at a specific activity area during the day. A camp counselor at Wicosuta is like a working parent; you go to work during the day (teaching at your activity area) and have responsibilities within your cabin “at home.” We are looking for people with experience in the following areas to instruct lessons: athletics, aquatics, creative arts, or outdoor adventure. The “Extreme” staff consists of two separate staff groups: Challenge Course and Outdoor Adventure.
