CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Camp Walt Whitman summer program offers campers an opportunity to learn new skills, to develop confidence, and explore new passions all while having loads of fun.

In our warm and supportive environment, children learn that they can enjoy an activity no matter their skill level or previous experience.

We pride ourselves on providing high quality instruction in a great atmospher that simply allows children to thrive and have fun!

We provide a tremendous variety of activities - over 50 different choices among land sports, water sports, outdoor adventure, and the arts.

Our program is balanced to allow our summer campers to deepen close friendships by sharing three scheduled cabin activities each day while also exploring their own individual interests through our extensive range of electives.

These electives include a daily choice as well as a week long elective period called SIGs (Special Interest Groups) which function as mini-specialty sports camps.

Sports at Walt Whitman:
From baseball and basketball to hockey and lacrosse; from softball and gymnastics to flag football and soccer athletics are scheduled regularly for every camper in every cabin. Whether a beginner or an advanced player, each child receives expert instruction in all sports, which increases their ability to play and their sheer enjoyment of the game.

Collegiate Athletes and Coaches:
Our coaches, most of whom are current or former collegiate athletes and coaches, place their emphasis on building strong skills, having fun, sharing their passion for their sport, and teaching our campers that no matter what their ability level they can enjoy participating in the activity.

Our most advanced athletes will choose in-depth athletic clinics during their elective time and their week-long specialty classes. Inter-camp sports competitions against nearby camps provide wonderful opportunities for challenge and competition in a fun environment.

Professional Tennis Instruction:
Our experienced tennis staff is led by Dave Porter. Dave is a USPTA National Past President and is the current Chair of the Player Development Council. He is the longtime Head Coach of the BYU Hawaii men's and women's tennis teams, where he has won a combined 10 Division II NCAA championships, as well as being named Collegiate Coach of the Year 5 times. In 2012 Dave was named as the USPTA Tennis Professional of the Year.

Dave oversees a staff that offers all of our summer camp kids excellent, regularly scheduled instruction for all levels on our 11 clay tennis courts.

Campers with a passion for tennis can also choose tennis for their daily elective and for their week-long specialty.

Exciting in-camp ladder play and tournaments complement a very active intercamp schedule.

Intensive Tennis Program:
If advancement in tennis is a priority, campers may choose to participate in our Intensive Tennis Program, which provides campers with two additional private lessons each week

Participation in these outdoor activities enable children to develop confidence, leadership skills, and a spirit of adventure. In awe-inspiring locations, our campers develop a sense of responsibility for all that surrounds them.

Certified professional staff help campers learn to set goals for themselves, whether attempting the Climbing Wall, working together on the Low or High Ropes Courses, pitching a tent on an overnight camping trip, challenging the rapids while White Water Rafting or exploring mountain trails on a hike.

Weekly day trips are scheduled for every group. Our campers challenge themselves on these adventures while also enjoying the simple pleasures of eating s'mores and chatting around the campfire.

Our older campers have the opportunity to participate in 3 and 5 day backpacking adventures, biking trips, and canoeing expeditions. In addition, these campers enjoy week-long trips to the Maine seacoast, Acadia National Park, Montreal, and Quebec City.

The Arts:
A broad spectrum of arts programs provides many outlets for campers' creative interests and talents.

Professional artists and teachers work with children in separate, well-equipped studios for ceramics, woodworking and crafts.The arts programs at CWW are designed for all ages and ability levels. Enjoyment of, and exposure to, the arts are our goals.

Studios buzz with excitement as campers saw and sand the pieces of a chess set, throw the perfect pot on the pottery wheel, or make t-shirts in our crafts studio.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Camp Walt Whitman is fortunate to attract particularly nice kids, down-to-earth families, and a strong, experienced, and motivated staff. Our campers are encouraged to be active participants, willing to stretch themselves to try new things and overcome challenges.

Camp Walt Whitman is a community that encourages friendship, leadership, responsibility, and teamwork. Herein lies the fundamental mission of Walt Whitman as we help campers discover their own unique potential while understanding what it means to be part of a bigger community.

Camp Walt Whitman is a place where kids have fun and everyone is open to new ideas and experiences. Developing friendships is easy. The focal point of the Walt Whitman experience is the Cabin Group, which forms a camper's summer family. Not only do campers live together in their cabin, but they also participate as a group in many of their activities throughout the day.

Through living and learning together, campers really get to know and like one another. They learn how to accommodate and respect each other's differences and, in the process, become good friends.

As a result, campers frequently visit each other throughout the year and remain friends long after the summer's end. Making lifelong friendships is a priceless part of your child's summers at Walt Whitman.

Three staff members live in each cabin. The two cabin counselors stay with the group all day; the third, an activity specialist, is assigned to teach one of our programs. The result is a strong, cohesive group of children, supervised by adults who know them well and can appropriately encourage and motivate while providing guidance and fun!
