ROMP- Camp Counselor Information

Camp Counselors are an integral part of Summer Camp. WCHS looks for students and adults in our community that are interested in helping with our summer camp, by being a camp counselor. The job of these animal advocates is to serve as role models to campers and to assist staff with tasks and camp activities. This opportunity has been designed to foster skills in areas such as leadership, animal handling, personal accountability, and communication.

WCHS asks that counselors are 16 years and older.


Though the experience is rewarding and fun, it involves a lot of hard work, all of which needs to be done in a timely manner and while maintaining an enthusiastic attitude.
