Camp Dudley Carpenter (1986)
Wilbur attended Dudley all four years as a camper from 1986-1989, where his love of Camp and the Adirondack Park was born. He returned in 1991 as a JL, rising to Cub D-Head in 1997. At the same time, he began his teaching career which conveniently left summer months available to return to Camp. In 1999, Wilbur served as Assistant Program Director with Matt Storey. Wilbur’s staff journey later led him to run the Arts Department, and he then became Camp photographer and videographer.
Will worked in several different schools in the off seasons, most recently teaching middle school math. Concurrently, Will’s work with the Sustainability Committee at Greenwich Country Day School led him to discover a previously undiscovered passion for design/build with a focus on energy efficiency.
Will now holds certifications in Net Zero Design/Build and Building Science Principles. He is a Passive House Tradesperson and loves working with his hands. The opportunity to work at Camp to combine all these skills presents a new and exciting chapter.
Wilbur hopes to combine his institutional knowledge, years of working with young people, and passion for design, building and learning to this new opportunity. The proximity to hiking, skiing, golf, and Lake Champlain are also huge bonuses. Wilbur, his wife Lauren, and dog Charley live in Elizabethtown, NY.
