Listed below are the key summer staff that help make Camp Wayfarer the special place it is. The combined efforts of these individuals keep our camp running smoothly and efficiently.

Program Directors

These individuals oversee all programs at Wayfarer. They work with the Director to organize all daily activities for campers. They are out in the various program areas making sure things are going as they should. They also work with the evening program head for evening activities.

Head Counselors

Head counselors work with the Director to assign counselor days off, evenings off, and direct all cabin counselors.

Program Heads

These individuals head up each of our seven program areas supervising and teaching with counselors. They work directly with the Director and Program Directors to coordinate all activities and programs. Program heads are usually experienced cabin counselors/teachers.

Cabin Counselors

These individuals are the camp’s most direct link to campers and parents. Cabin counselors are the leaders in each cabin and set the tone for it. They are responsible for the safety, welfare, and happiness of each camper in the cabin.

Just as they set the tone in the cabin, cabin counselors also teach in program areas. In this way, they get to know all campers and see them in a variety of settings. They provide the expertise and energy in all programs.


CIT’s are support staff that work in teams. These individuals help in all areas of camp including cabin areas, programs, and facilities. CIT’s have completed the 11th grade and are never expected to lead activities or be primary supervisors. CIT’s are being well trained to take the role of counselor as rising college freshmen.

Nursing Staff

Our camp nurses are RN’s that also have children at Wayfarer. As camp “moms” and experts in their fields they take fabulous care of our campers! They are responsible for the overall care of all of our staff and campers.

Kitchen Staff

Our meals are prepared by experienced cooks that come from local school systems. Most have worked at Wayfarer for multiple years and take great pride in feeding us all summer!
