Hello Nor'wester Friends and Families! We are swiftly heading towards the end of second session. The Big Trips returned on Friday! The campers in our four oldest units were hiking, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and climbing mountains last week! [...]
When I attended the camp over many summers, I realized this was the community of people I wanted to put myself in. The atmosphere of the camp always brings a smile to my face, and happy thoughts to my mind. Working long hours with people you love being around, laughing and singing isn’t work in my eyes, it’s an experience that you can’t find anywhere else.
Camp Nor’wester is the best place that I have ever worked. This isn’t because of the job (although that was fun, too) but because of the openness, support, and just general kindness/respect given to you by the staff team.
Spending three months outside, sleeping in a tipi and sharing what I love most with others is worth little pay and long hours. There are so many in our world today who don’t understand what being outdoors can do to a person. Outdoors we are our most real and authentic selves. From this place of honesty there can be so much change and growth.
