WHAT STAFF SAY ABOUT WORKING AT CAMP WICOSUTA
"... I truly had an amazing experience. The staff was brilliant, really worked hard, they were so much fun and I'm proud to have been a part of that unique bunch of people... I loved being on the boats driving kids in the sun and on the beautiful lake. Now I really know how lucky I was to have that dream job...I know for sure that next summer I want to be in New Hampshire living the dream again..."
James G., Camp Counselor
"Camp helped me grow as a person, and validated my feelings on how much I enjoy working with children. It brought me out of my comfort zone and taught me life lessons that cannot be learned in a classroom. If someone would of told me that this summer I was going to win a dance competition, compete in a pie eating contest, hide in the woods and not be found, be a role model, skip around a dining hall, sing a song to the entire camp, coach girls to victory, win a canoe race, and become a mother to a cabin full of girls I probably wouldn't of believed them. The memories that I created this summer are those that I will never forget. Every laugh, every cry, and every moment where I thought I could never of been more exhausted in my entire life was completely worth it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your summer home with me, and I hope to see you next summer!"
Lindsey R., Camp Counselor
"I have had the best experience of my life. Working down at the waterfront couldn't have been any better, with the excellent directors, all the amazing staff who I got along with so well and all of the really good equipment there is down there. This summer has given me the opportunity to open my eyes to all the new things I could try and succeed in, from passing my life-guarding course to learning how to water-ski properly and then having the confidence to teach it to the campers and for them to perfect their skill levels was so overwhelming. Once again thank you guys so so much for bringing me to Wico it was the best experience ever and I would love to come back and do it all again next year!"
Sam D., Camp Counselor
Wico is a community, and what a special and unique community it is. Its a place filled with love, energy and a positive attitude. A place where every single person feels welcomed and included and all because of the amazing mentors we have (directors, activity heads, head counselors). I had the best summer of my life.
Shiarah T., Camp Counselor
"Not only was working at Wico this past summer a life changing experience, I learned many new things about myself and the potential I have in my future. I believe that this job has helped prepare me for life after college and I wanted to thank you."
Brittany B., Camp Counselor
"Wico is a place that expects the best from people, and makes everyone want to do right by each other. Wico is a place that makes people better, it made me better, and that is why I think it is so special. I never expected to feel so passionately about a place that I only spent two and a half months of my long life of 20 years, but that is what Wico is to me, Wico is like my second home."
Caroline E., Camp Counselor
"... it's very difficult to summarize the many lessons, feelings and friendships that consumed my time in the mountains of New Hampshire. Wicosuta is a positive atmosphere with great staff, and ample activities and opportunities for personal growth...I thank Wico for the impact and memories it has left with me, it is hands down one of the greatest experiences of my life thus far."
Vicki H., Camp Counselor
"Wicosuta is my home; it is the place I think about all winter long and I can't wait to get there in the summer. I cry when I leave and I laugh when I am there. I try leaving an imprint on everyone I teach because I know that they will leave an imprint on me. Camp is like its own little world and I never want to leave. It has truly been a gift that keeps on giving- I can't believe that it has been eight years!"
Allie A.,Waterfront Director
"Wicosuta is my home away from home! As soon as I go back to school at the end of each summer, I start the countdown for the next summer! I never thought I'd love anything this much. At Wico, I feel like I'm a part of something huge...a part of something that no one can experience alone. Each person at Wico is responsible for the community we have built up over the years. They are more than my friends...they are my family. Camp Wicosuta is my life, and it's an honor to get to continue to come back each summer."
Abbey W., Camp Counselor
"At first, when I was looking at the website, reading all the info and watching the video, I wasn't even close to imagining what Wico really was. From working pre-camp in the office with everyone, to receiving awesome preparation during orientation, to then putting the skills in practice and achieving the most wonderful experience I've ever done...on my own, the magic you guys transmitted to me was simply wonderful. I am now back at home full of passion for life, for what I'm studying at school and for the project I'm working on at work. I'm able to look back on what I learned from ya'll and by myself this summer and I feel able to accomplish so much more."
Veronique B., Camp Counselor Summer
"...thank you sooo much for the best summer of my life. I never could imagine such different people from different parts of the world [would] come together as friends and it would be like we knew each other all of our lives! Thank you for choosing the best staff at Wico! We all tried our hardest and in the end had fun at everything we had done!"
Victoria E., Support Staff
I came back to Poland two weeks ago! I want to go back to Wico. I am still wearing my green WICO PRIDE bracelet. I miss all people I have met there!"
Kamila C., Support Staff
"I had the best time at Wico this summer. I have made many friends that I will cherish my whole life. My staff of instructors were just the best. Thanks so much for helping to make my summer a great, memorable, and really fun time."
Barbara D., Horseback Riding Activity Head
"Seriously, I cannot stop thinking what a great experience I had at Wico...I feel like, suddenly I grew up; I really achieved something in my life by coming to Wico. And now that I know I can do it, I would like to throw myself to different adventures."
Livia A., Camp Counselor
"I can't wait to come back. As soon as I got back [home] I was looking at all my photos and remembering back to camp. I must say it is true, you really do make life-long friends and I loved it! Therefore [I] made up my mind...that I wanted to return!"
