Every summer we are looking for the highest-quality applicants to help create a truly life-changing experience for all of our day-campers. As a staff member at Ramah Day Camp, you will work to create a warm, nurturing environment in which each of our campers learns to shine!
We are looking for applicants with significant and meaningful experience working with children in camping and educational settings. If you are interested in the summer experience of a lifetime, please be in touch with Eileen Graub, our Day Camp Assistant Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
At Ramah Day Camp you will live, learn, work and play in a total Jewish environment. Our facilities, campers and staff make up one of the greatest Jewish communities in North America!
YOUR SUMMER TO BE WHO YOU ARE!
Every summer job gives you job experience. But what summer job lets you grow as an individual in a community of young Jewish adults just like you?
People come to Ramah from a wide range of Jewish observance and background. Thus, Jewish life at Ramah is a mixture of what we know, blended together with new songs, Jewish practices, and experiences. Being Jewish assumes a new dimension when it takes place in a setting of natural beauty amongst a community of friends.
YOUR SUMMER TO SHARE YOURSELF
Everyone on staff serves as a mentor to our campers. While some do so in formal settings, our campers find that some of the best learning comes from informal conversations with their counselors while in the bunk, around the campfire, or just taking a stroll. As a staff member, you truly have many opportunities to change a child’s life.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT DURING YOUR SUMMER?
Both Camp Ramah in the Poconos and Ramah Day Camp start the summer off with an intensive staff week of training and bonding. In addition to valuable planning and preparation time, staff week includes activities just for staff members. Staff training and hadracha (counseling) continue throughout the summer.
In addition, evening programs designed especially for staff take place almost every night. Staff members enjoy basketball leagues, barbeques, social programs and educational opportunities.
You will have opportunities to create innovative camp programs, together with a team of enthusiastic, committed, caring, nurturing and creative people-just like you. What will you gain from a job at Ramah?
- Valuable skills that employers are looking for, such as teamwork, leadership, responsibility, supervisory skills, communication skills and positive work ethics
- Real job experience
- Preparation for graduate school and the job market
- The joy of belonging to a close-knit Jewish community of young adults like yourself
- Friendships that last well past the summer
- The chance to change a child’s life!
