Outstanding summer programs for teens since 1982

Program Director

Program Directors (PDs) have the highest level of responsibility with their group in the summer. PDs oversee everything including, but not limited to, the health, safety, and enjoyment of each and every participant, and the execution of the itinerary as planned and outlined by WCC. PDs are responsible for managing a team of staff through coaching, supervising, and providing on-going feedback. PDs serve as a representative of WCC on the road and act as our liaison to suppliers, outfitters, and vendors. PDs also communicate regularly with parents, company supervisors, and the summer communication center.
