A large part of my experience at WLC is the staff from different parts of the world. It adds an entirely different prospective on life and completely changes the way camp is oriented. They are able to help make new activities as well as helps campers from different places fit in.

I have been at camp for 8 years and I am now a part of the LIT program and now work with staff from all over the world. And as aforecited they have made my experience as a camper and counselor amazing. Our staff come from all over the place including Spain, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, etc. this has helped me take home a new prospective on life because of the experiences that they bring to camp. An example of this is this year we have a lot of staff from South Africa who taught me about the culture there and the major differences in language and ways of life which made me think a lot about how I live at home. This is an overall helpful experience because I normally dont critically think about my way of life but now I feel as if I am better off after having this introduced to me.
These staff haven't only affected me but also the entirety of camp. They create new games for the camp and bring old ones from their countries. They create new games for the camp and bring old ones from their countries such as Aussie rules. As well as helping with games they also help kids from outside of America feel safer because they have a counselor who is just as far from home as them. This is also helpful for when they don't speak E and enriches the William Lawrence Camp experience.nglish very well and a staff speaking the same language can help with this a lot. Overall these staff add a new experience to camp that couldn't happen without them
