Our Staff

During staff training, we always tell counselors that no matter what they will become in life, the job they have this summer is the most important job in the world – taking care of other people’s children. Our philosophy of kindness, no-cliques, and our well known welcoming nature is known and lived by every member of Camp Waziyatah’s staff.

All our counselors are heavily vetted and background checked and many have come up from the ranks of campers after going through our two-year leadership training program. Our leadership team of Senior Staff members are all multi-year camp professionals who know camp inside and out and make sure no campers ever fall through the cracks.
