Newman's Camp Wamsutta is a place where kids come to learn, grow and thrive. At Y camps every kid has FUN in a friendly, safe environment.

We believe that the success of our program lies in the quality of our staff. Staff is selected on their experience, ability to lead camp activities and their personal commitment to role-modeling positive values. Our program is unique because we have many camp staff who serve as child care professionals during the school year with our Out of School Time (OST) program. Furthermore, we strive to retain seasonal staff people from summer to summer. Your child may already know many of our staff from their OST site or from camp last year. Staff is closely supervised by a leadership staff of dedicated YMCA professionals. These seasoned staff members bring a great deal of knowledge and experience to the Camp Wamsutta summer program.
Each year, our staff participates in an in-depth training program that covers areas such as; program goals, emergency procedures, group work skills and child development.
Each staff receives training and is certified in First Aid and CPR. All counselors are 18 years of age or older and have prior camp and/or child care experience, and go through a complete nationwide criminal background check.
