The staff experience at Camp Chen-A-Wanda is so much more than just a summer job. It may sound like a total cliche’, but working at camp will literally change your life. Our counselors are given the opportunity to truly understand what it means to be a part of something special. Our camp is structured around thrilling activities and stunning facilities, but what sets us apart is our palpable camp culture and spirit that is embodied in the incredible people whom we hire every year.

Camp Chen-A-Wanda

General Counselors and Specialist Counselors are expected to live in a bunk with three to four other counselors and a set group of campers for the 7-week summer session in addition to a 1-week orientation session prior to the campers’ arrival on June 23rd, 2018. General Counselors spend their days looking after their campers while also taking them to their scheduled activities which encompass a variety of sports, arts, adventure, and waterfront activities. Specialist Counselors have similar responsibilities, with the exception being that for most or all of the daily schedule (approximately 10:00 am until 5:00 pm- lunch and breaks included) they are expected to be at their specialty area (baseball field, arts and crafts building, lake front, etc.) to teach and coach their specialty to a variety of camper groups that will rotate through on a schedule similar to high school classes.
