J Camp seeks Summer Camp Counselors

J Camp counselors work in teams to create meaningful, fun, and safe experiences for kids all summer. Together with dozens of your peers, you will develop leadership and problem-solving skills; learn how to empower, motivate, and coach others; and have an excellent time doing so!

You’ll start the summer with first aid/CPR training, and an introduction to youth programming, positive discipline, and guidance on how to plan and run activities—setting you up for your role as a teacher, mentor, and professional camp staffer. During J Camp, your days will be filled with swimming, arts & crafts, waterfront activities, singing, and opportunities to create engaging games and activities for your own cohort. Throughout your summer you’ll build confidence, find creative solutions to new challenges, and build strong ties to your peers and the rest of the Stroum JCC team. As a place that welcomes everyone, working at J Camp is an outstanding way to contribute, grow, and earn money all summer long!
