Harold Westerman, University of Maine Football Coach and Athletic Director, and his wife Shirley became the owners of The Wavus Camps in 1954. Harold was the director of the Damariscotta Boy's Camp and Shirley was the Director of the Wawanock Girl's Camp. Westy and Mrs. Westie, as they were affectionately called, ran the Wavus Camps until 1976.

Here's a quote from Westy in the '55 Wavus yearbook: 

“Mrs. Westie, The guiding light of the Wawanock maidens, perfectionist in camp management, always seen on the run, never too busy to listen, problem consultant and solver, sparkling smile and equally sparkling sense of humor, my friend”.
