All about the Whitman Family
Welcome to Whitman Summer Camp! We are opening our 11th Summer of camp and are so excited to continue even more fun and exciting programs for Summer 2020. We truly have the BEST JOBS EVER! We cannot tell you how much we enjoy running our family business and hanging out all summer with our campers and our staff. One of the best parts of our summer camp experience over the last 10 years, has been seeing our returning campers every summer as they grow up. These campers are now starting to become LITs, CITs and Staff. We are truly one big Camp Family!
As educators, we know what kids love and what makes kids tick. We program our camp by thinking "out of the box" and putting creative twists on traditional camp experiences. We believe that summer camp is all about the individual camper and what they want to experience. The school year presents our campers with very limited choices on what they want to do, it's all about what they have to do. So we make our entire camp program about choices. Campers create their own experience based on their individual and unique choices.
As parents, we know how important it is for kids to feel safe and secure. We hire only the best staff to ensure that while kids are having a blast, they are in a safe environment. We treat your kids like our own...well maybe with a little more patience then with our own kids:)
