Experience White Memorial Camp!

Our Staff

Our team members are the heart of our operation. Camp is made possible through the hard work and dedication of some of the worlds most caring people.

Being a staff member 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. We ensure our staff are professional, properly vetted, and maintain low camper to staff ratios.

Volunteers are a necessity and more than welcome to join our WMC staff. Learn more here. Frequently, we have volunteer pastors to lead our Vespers services and provide bible education. 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. If you are interested in volunteering, please connect with us on the Contact Page.

While some of our staff are seasonal, and may only work for a summer, some of our staff have been here for over 10 years and make camp possible.  Our kitchen staff is made up of professional cooks and those interested in learning more about food services. When hiring camp counselors, we look for passionate, hard working students with an interest in areas such as education, recreational sciences, outdoor living skills, ministries, social work, mental or physical therapy, psychology, sports – and really any passion because all are welcome at camp!

Justin Whittaker- Director, began his WMC career  over 15 years ago. Since then, he has been volunteer, summer counselor, program director and since 2016, Camp Director.  Nearly an Education Major with a Minor in Spanish, instead Justin graduated from Baker University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and a minor in Communication. He is an American Red Cross Instructor, High/Low Ropes Course Facilitator with background in communication, conflict management, sales, and entertainment. He trains staff, creates summer curriculums, and maintains health & safety standards. His focus is on building communication skills, problem-solving and teamwork. Somehow along the way he earned the nickname “Rubber Ducky” and can be seen following his trusty camp dog, Eevee to and from the camp office. Stop by 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!
