Specialist Staff

The camp staff team, whether small or large, is made up of a team of competent, passionate and driven individuals.

Christian or Jewish Faith

Preferred Experience/Qualifications;

 

Religion plays a big part of a lot of the camps we work with across the USA. Although some simply look to promote certains values associated with a religion, others will have a higher level of practice. Camps of this type will be on the lookout for staff who are more heavily involved with their faith.

Christian Faith

If hired for a role at a dedicated Christian camp, you will not be required to actively lead sermons but you will need to feel confident enough to lead child focused bibles lessons through arts/crafts, plays and Sunday School.

 
Your willingness to work with different denominations (protestant, catholic, Pentecostal, Baptist) will allow you to be considered for more camps of this type.

Jewish Faith

If you regularly attend synagogue and have experience in teaching Torah studies to children, you will be the perfect candidate for any one of the dedicated Jewish faith camps that we work with.
