Great Staff

Our counselors are simply the best! Our skilled and trained staff create a safe environment and lead activities which establish cooperation and socialization skills. Most of our staff were once Campers at The J, so they know the impact of great role models, fun activities and outstanding Camp spirit!

Israeli Counselors: Each summer we hire Israeli young adults as Shlichim (Emissaries). The Shlichim enrich the camp experience with Israeli cultural activities and special projects.

Interested in becoming a J Camp Staff Member for 2020? Each year we look for enthusiastic, self-motivated summer staff members to provide program activities and supervision for day campers. We prefer full-time staff who are available June 1 - Aug. 7, Monday through Friday.
Staff needed: Camp counselors, directors, specialists, Para-Educators, and substitute staff.

Applications beginning in December.
