What will I do as a counselor?
Family Camp and JFAM Family Camp are weekends designed for families to experience camp together! We will once again partner with Foundation for Jewish Camps. Our Fall and Spring Family Camps are open to all families, from early childhood-aged campers to high school. Our JFAM Family Camp in April will be geared for families with children 8 years-old and younger. All campers will sleep with their parents and will participate in activities during specific periods of the day with “bunks.” When you are not with your assigned group of campers, you will be helping overall with the event facilitating activities and creating camp magic for all. For this event, we are looking for staff who are great with our younger campers, new campers, and returning campers and can provide top level customer service to our adult family members on-site!
Fall and Spring Camp
Camp Weekends are weekends that most mirror our summer camp experience. Open for elementary and middle school campers, Spring Camp offers the fun of the summer packed into one weekend. Over this less than 48-hour experience, campers will experience a classic camp Shabbat, chugs and hagigahs (sports and art activities), free-time, bonding with bunkmates and making new friends. This weekend is designed as a camp reunion for veteran campers and a chance for new campers to try out a taste of camp to see if they’d like to join for the summer. As a staff member, you’ll be assigned to a bunk of no more than 12 campers of one age group and will be their counselor for the weekend. This means spending the entire weekend making their weekend magical and ensuring the safety of all our campers: sleeping in the bunk with campers, assisting them at meals and eating with them, participating and leading pre-planned in activities, serving as the comforting adult when they might be missing home, and creating a weekend of memories and camp magic.
