Camp Wicosuta Reference Form
This applicant has applied for a position on our summer staff at Camp Wicosuta and has listed you as a reference. We would appreciate your assistance in evaluating his/her candidacy. Camp work is challenging and counselors must be able to relate effectively to children, adult supervisors and college-age peers. A staff member must be a great role model for our girls and be able to live within community standards, such as a nightly curfew. We are looking for mature young adults who love children, are spirited and fun and approach their responsibilities seriously.
Founded in 1920, Camp Wicosuta is a traditional four-week sleepaway camp for girls in Hebron, New Hampshire that offers two sessions. 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.
Female counselors live with a group of children between the ages of 6-15 and teach at a specific activity area. Parents entrust their children's care to our staff and we are entrusting you with helping us determine whether this applicant is well suited for that role. Receiving this form as soon as possible helps us process the candidate's application in a timely fashion.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or additional comments. Thank you in advance for your insight and assistance.
