JFAM Family Retreats

JFAM Family Retreats are weekends designed for families to experience camp together! This year, we are excited to partner with Foundation for Jewish Camps to re-envision our family retreat program specifically for families with children under the age of 8. 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 and can provide top level customer service to our adult family members on-site!  

GFC Family Getaways

GFC Family Getaways are geared towards out camper-aged families and give the whole family the opportunity to experience camp together. Families will enjoy celebrating Shabbat, signing around the campfire, ziplining through the air, and experiencing the best of what camp has to offer. All campers will sleep with their parents and will participate in activities during specific periods of the day with “bunks.” For this event, we look for staff who are passionate about creating camp magic for campers of all ages and giving all of our campers (parents included!) the ultimate taste of camp.

Camp Weekends

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 7-10 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.
