Justin Whittaker- Director, began his WMC career as a volunteer junior counselor over 10 years ago. Since then, he has filled the role as a staff summer counselor and then later served as the Camp program director. In the program director role, he trained staff, created summer curriculums, and maintained health & safety standards. In 2016, Justin accepted the role as Director and continues to share his creativity, enthusiasm, and positivity. Justin graduated from Baker University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and a minor in Communication. His focus is on building communication skills, problem-solving, conflict management and teamwork. He loves dogs, hates mushrooms, and is indifferent toward the Dewey Decimal System. Be sure to stop by the office and say “Hello.”
Morgan Scott- Program Director, is from McPherson, Kansas. The year 2013 marks the beginning of her Camp life. She started out as a camper at WMC. For four summers, she made some of the greatest memories of her life. She met life long friends, discovered an addiction to campfire songs, and fell in love with all that WMC has to offer. Making sure campers have fun, keeping traditions alive, and ensuring that the s’mores always turn out golden brown are just some of the reasons why she loves her job!
Scott Siebert was born and raised in Salina, Kansas. He attended Kansas State University until the culinary field began calling. He became a sous chef at Manhattan Country Club. His passions for food then moved him to Lincoln, Nebraska, where he became Executive Chef at Hillcrest Country Club. The next leg of his journey landed him in Council Grove, where he helped run the Hays House kitchen. His culinary journeys have also allowed him the opportunity to cook for the K-State Athletics performance table at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. He came to work at camp for one reason – he’s addicted to s’mores. Listen closely at camp because when Scott gets the blues, he’s been known to play the harmonica!
Being a staff member at #ExperienceWMC is far more than a summer job… it’s an unforgettable experience in a beautiful setting. Leadership staff must be at least 18 years of age and must pass a background check. WMC will provide First Aid, CPR, & AED certifications, as well as, staff training on risk management, safety, and how to facilitate fun. Many of our leadership team members are college students and/or those interested in education, recreation, or coaching.
Volunteers are welcome to join our WMC staff. Frequently, we have volunteer pastors to lead our Vespers services and provide bible education. Other volunteers include– mothers, fathers, grandparents, retired folks, high schoolers, and college students. Whether you’re looking for somewhere special to spend your time or you would like to fulfill philanthropy hours for school or scholarships, WMC has a spot for you. Volunteers often bring special skills to Camp in the way of arts & crafts, music, fishing, outdoor education, cooking, cleaning, mowing, painting, and many other specialty areas. Can’t commit to an entire week? You’d rather repair something? You’d love to teach fishing? There are plenty of ways to get involved! Volunteers are required to complete a background check.
