Here’s a question: what skills and experiences are employers looking for in college graduates? While most young adults will graduate from college with a long resume of coursework and computer software competencies, it is life skills that often define superior employees. Those who achieve success usually demonstrate leadership, teamwork, communication, creativity, problem solving, flexibility and initiative. And what better place to learn and practice those skills than summer camp?
Camp is not only for the camper—it is for everyone in the camp community, including our staff. Our primary task is to ensure the safety, well-being and growth of our campers, but we also aim to promote growth in our adult staff as well. We know that staff who are given the opportunity to grow, personally and professionally, make great camp leaders (which results in happy campers) and build a lasting connection to the Jewish community.
We look for the following qualities in our staff:
- Positive attitude
And we offer the following opportunities:
- On-the-job training and supervision to help you achieve your potential
