Our Staff

 
 

At Camp Weed, we’re committed to finding the greatest, loudest, most enthusiastic, and most qualified staff members we can. We look for our staff members to have leadership experience, a passion for children, and a love for serving others.

 

Our Camp Director - Allison East Vining

 

Allison Vining Headshot

 

Originally from Vicksburg, Mississippi, Allison Vining attended summer camp for the first time at age 5 and became a counselor at 15. Allison attended Louisiana Tech University, where she earned a B.A. in History and Journalism. Immediately following graduation, she began her career as the camp director at Warner-Tully YMCA Camp right outside Vicksburg. She, her husband, and her dog Peeps moved to Florida in 2016, and she joined the Camp Weed staff in January of 2017. Since then, she has fallen in love with the Camp Weed Community.

 

In addition to Camp Weed, Allison is committed to the camping industry as a whole. She's a member of The Summer Camp Society and serves on the Board of Authors for Patchwork Marketplace, a website for camp and outdoor recreation professionals to share their ideas and resources. Allison helps push the industry forward by blogging about camp at Summer Camp Magic. She was even in a camp podcast! She regularly participates in webinars, classes, and more to continue learning and growing.

 

Allison enjoys reading cozy novels and checking in her sister Tori.

Our Staff

As we’ve mentioned before, our staff are amazing college-aged (and a few high school) students who give up their summers to invest in the lives of our campers. They come from a variety of universities, including University of Florida, Florida State University, Mississippi State University, and more. In their spare time, many of them are actively involved in their on-campus ministries and other areas of campus.

 

In addition to cabin counselors, we also have non-cabin staff who help with specific areas of camp. For the 2019 summer, we have:

  • Worship Coordinator
  • Activities Coordinator
  • Gratitude and Appreciation Coordinator
  • Waterfront Coordinator
  • Head Lifeguard
  • Challenge Course Coordinator
  • Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Coordinator
  • Leader-in-Training (LIT) Coordinator
  • Office Manager

To meet our individual counselors, follow our Facebook page, where we #MeetTheStaffMonday.

 

 

Staff Training

Our staff members are required to undergo a week-long staff training, where they they learn about homesickness, talking to campers, facilitating groups, dealing with issues, and more.

 

If you’d like to know more about our staff training, we’d be happy to send you a schedule or our resources. Simply contact us, and we’ll send it your way!

 

 

Additional Information

All of our staff members, from our director to our food service staff, undergo rigorous background checks and child abuse prevention training from the Diocese of Florida before serving your camper. Many of our staff members are lifeguard certified, and our ropes course workers are certified through ACCT.
