Looking for a fun, action-packed summer job?
The JCCSF is hiring camp counselors for summer 2019!
Who says that work has to feel like work? As a camp counselor, every day is a fresh adventure! Join our summer camp team and help create a safe, fun, exciting environment for young campers.
At our classic day camps, you might lead kids on a field trip one day and help them create arts & crafts on another. You’ll be their trusted coach as they cook, swim and play sports. At our specialty camps, help kids explore visual arts and musical theater or discover the magic of science and nature. Lead the way as they learn carpentry or hone their culinary chops.
We believe that summer camp is the place to push your limits and learn new things, and as a camp counselor you’ll be helping children create lifelong memories. At the same time, you’ll develop your leadership skills, learn new games, boost your resume, and work on an incredibly fun team!
