Camp Wicosuta is a traditional four-week sleepaway camp for girls in Hebron, New Hampshire that offers two sessions.
A summer at Wico will change you.
As a camp counselor at Wico, you will live in a cabin with 6-12 campers and 2-3 adults and work at a specific activity area during the day. A camp counselor at Wicosuta is like a working parent; you go to work during the day (teaching at your activity area) and have responsibilities within your cabin “at home.”
Our philosophy is based on providing the “3 C’s”: Confidence, Competence & Community. Our goal is for every camper to walk away feeling confident in herself, and competent in her abilities in any number of areas. We teach these skills in a physically and emotionally safe community in which our campers are challenged to move past their self-set limits

Bold [adjective|not afraid of anything]. A role at Wicosuta is an opportunity to be a part of something different. To impact others for the better. A summer at Wico will change you. We’re a community that isn’t afraid to take safe risks and be ourselves. Oh yeah, we like to have fun too.
Perks [noun|the good stuff you get for working hard]. If you work at Wicosuta, you also live at Wico (so no paying rent). We will feed you three meals a day (with lots of variety and snacks).

You will work alongside people from all over the world who will become lifelong friends. That means you will have a reason to visit (and free places to stay) different parts of the world when summer is over!
