Camp Staff

Camp WeCanDu is home to the best counselors around!

Camp WeCanDu Counselors

With an average of 50-60 campers each year, DASA requires a large number of super-dedicated counselors to adequately meet the needs of each and every individual over the whole week of camp.  DASA recruits students and other individuals from various fields and backgrounds to assist at Camp WeCanDu.  Although camp serves as a great opportunity for those headed into therapy and related professions to put their education and knowledge to work in a unique, real world setting, it offers each and every counselor a life-changing experience - no matter their background.

Anyone interested in working at camp, MUST complete the staff application. 
Completing the application does NOT guarantee you a position


EVERYONE
 must complete an interview with the DASA Staff. 
Interviews will begin in late April.


For questions, please contact campers@dasasports.org

Testimonials

About the experience...

"...he has never been away from home before and has extreme anxiety and he gained so much confidence and independence during the week that still shows on a daily basis."

"So many times in the real world she gets left out or has to sit on the sidelines and watch other kids participate. Not with Camp WeCanDo. More importantly she made friends and had fun and was able to be a kid without limits. As hard as it was to leave her for the week I'm so thankful I did and it still brings tears to my eyes just looking at the pictures and thinking my child was doing all of the things any other kid can do. I don't think saying thank you is enough to express how I feel."

"There are too many amazing moments to share. My son rode a horse!! He went SCUBA diving, are you kidding, I've never done that!! Luke  [the counselor] was just a Godsend. Thank you Thank you Thank you"

About our Staff...

"These counselors are rare and I trust them more than I do most Para's at their school and counselors at other camps! I have no concerns with supervision because after 2 perfect years, they have earned my trust and I have so much love and respect for all of them!!"

"Absolutely [the nursing staff attended to our needs in a professional manner]!!! I have never felt more confident leaving medicines with any other nursing staff ([e.g.] Variety, school)!!!

About Camp WeCanDu

Camp WeCanDu provides an opportunity for local youth with physical disabilities to fully participate in a week-long, traditional summer camp experience.  Children living with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, visual impairments, and many other forms of physical disabilities will come together to create a fun and engaging social support system that encourages campers to discover their natural abilities through athletic and sensory activities while instilling family values and promoting independence and self-confidence that will later resonate through all aspects of life.
