Camp Wise Counselors are highly trained staff members, many of whom grew up at camp and have returned to contribute positively to their community. Camp Wise counselors act as siblings, friends, supervisors, tour guides, coaches, artists, and Red Cross certified First Aid and CPR responders! Our staff is cleared thoroughly through industry standard national background checks. Many camp wise staff members also work during the year at the many other CYE programs at Wise.
There are so many activities at Camp Wise and each are instructed by a qualified and trained specialist. Many of our specialists work in public and private schools, after school enrichment programs, and private businesses. All specialists are cleared through human resources and background checks. Each specialist brings their expertise and professionalism, giving our campers higher quality experience.
