We call them summer staff, but to our campers, they are the…
Heroes of Camp!!
The world needs more heroes and we’re busy assembling a team of everyday heroes who will serve as role models for the hundreds of campers coming to Camp Widjiitiwin this summer.
By definition a hero is a person who displays courage and self-sacrifice for the greater good; a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities; a person who, in the opinion of others, has special achievements, abilities, or personal qualities and is regarded as a role model or ideal; a person who has made noble and/or brave accomplishments.
These are the kind of staff we have at Widji and the qualities they bring to work each summer. Leaders bring positive energy, excellence and dedication. To the campers, their leaders are heroes who leave a lasting impression. Staff at all levels are seen as people the campers desire to become. many campers want to do SALT and then come on staff at Widji. No matter whether they serve, our staff in the kitchen (as cooks or dish crew), as cabin leaders, program staff, the leadership staff and the camp directors, we all are role models to our campers (and each other) what it looks like to serve God faithfully as a Christ follower. Staff build solid relationships with campers. Staff are there to listen and coach and guide and lead and display God’s love to the campers. They are role models of how to live as a Christian in today’s world. All to God be the Glory!!
Camp Widjiitiwin – the way camp was meant to be… relational, central, natural, reaching out, a loving community focused on Christ. It’s like coming home! It’s my camp!
