About Camp Walt Whitman

From the moment you arrive on the shores of Lake Armington you will be surrounded by New Hampshire's beautiful White Mountains and by an amazing group of people. Each summer over 200 staff members from across the globe converge and form some of the best friends of their life. Last year, our staff came to us from 37 states and 17 countries. Staff comes back to camp summer after summer because of the people.

Working at camp is demanding; the hours are long and the responsibility is tremendous. However, the rewards are priceless. Staff members at Walt Whitman truly make a positive impact on the lives of our campers. Our staff, which is amongst the best in the camping industry, have a passion for working with children and enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience.

Days are filled with exciting activities. Imagine playing basketball, baseball, hockey or field hockey, painting watercolors or throwing a clay pot, flying down the zip line at the ropes course, or serving and volleying on our tennis courts with a great group of kids, all in one day. A day at camp is a blast!

You will challenge yourself on hikes and waterskiing, but you will also have the opportunity to accomplish your personal goals. We want you to gain a wealth of new experiences. Travel throughout New England; gain valuable work experience. We feel that if you have the summer of your life our campers will too, and they will remember you for a lifetime!

The Employee Experience

Our staff strive to impact children, be a part of a community, and grow themselves.

Ideal Candidate

Each of these positions requires different skill sets but all of the staff members at Camp Walt Whitman have great interpersonal skills, the ability to connect with campers and staff, flexibility, and a hard-working attitude.  The rewards of summer at CWW cannot be summed up in any write-up of any length; they are memory-making, life-altering, growth-inducing parts of life that will stay with you forever.  If you want to be a part of a growing family that has been changing kids lives since 1948, please apply!

Room and Board

Most staff live in cabins with campers, meals are included.

Employee Perks

The summer of a lifetime with friends you will never forget and kids who will learn and grow from you as much as you will from them.

We will also work with you to provide internship credits through your University.

Getting Here and Getting Around

We are close to Boston and offer transportation to and from Logan Airport.  Our Camp is located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire and offers amazing hikes, days off, and overnights as well as a comprehensive athletic program.  There are many college towns near us for nights out and a great social environment.   If you have a car to bring to camp, we have parking for you, and if not, it is very easy to get rides on nights out or days off.

For Fun

See above but also we have a staff lounge for evening events such as dodge ball tournaments, trivia nights, open mic nights, and under the lights intramural leagues with other camps in the area.  Many towns nearby have restaurants and there is even a county fair that is in town for a few weeks every summer!
