Madi W. of Adelaide, Australia came all the way to New England’s favorite summer camp to share fun-filled experiences that she’ll remember forever. As the wake-sport team instructor at Camp Walt Whitman, she relished seeing campers’ faces light up as they achieved “wicked goals”—whether that meant landing a jump or making it beyond the wake for the first time. “I never get tired of it,” Madi said.
When they head back to summer camp after a long day of gliding around on the sparkling water, they would dance, sing, chat, and laugh. In the morning, the vibrant, sunny day always presented a new opportunity for growth and adventure. “They say you learn something new every day,” Madi said. She went on to say, “At camp, that is definitely true.”
Madi couldn’t help but admire the bravery, strength, and camaraderie these young people exhibited over the course of their journeys. While many children arrived visibly tentative, as the days passed, she saw them become self-assured and confident. She watched as the shy campers made friends and high-fived after standing up on skis for the first time. And as they blossomed, she did, too.
In addition to building genuine connections with campers, Madi fostered strong, long-lasting relationships with fellow employees. In the end, she knows Camp Walt Whitman offers more than just an enduring sense of community—it also offers the opportunity to be a part of a family.
