Employment at Camp Manito-wish YMCA has many rewards. The chance to work with a great group of kids, guiding them, teaching them new skills and new ways to look at the world and themselves. Leading wilderness trips ranging from the spectacular lakes of northern Wisconsin to the Alaskan wilderness . Making life-long friendships in a single summer season. And gaining collaborative leadership skills that make a healthy, positive impact on kids (and an equally positive impact on your resumé.) Yes, the pay is good. But what you get out of the experience is even better.
“Being on staff has taught me many invaluable lessons about leadership, patience, and confidence. My hope is that on each trip I lead I gave these back to my own participants.”
