Job Description

Jewish Programming Director for Jewish Community Center Resident Camps

The Mandel Center for Jewish Education of JCC Association is seeking qualified educators to serve as Jewish Programming Directors (JPD) at Jewish Community Center resident camps across the U.S. and Canada.


Jewish Programming Directors should have a strong background in Jewish education and need to be: knowledgeable about, experienced with, and interested in working in Jewish residential camps; able to work in a multi- and non-denominational setting; dynamic educators who can work effectively with campers, counselors and other senior staff; personable and charismatic; motivated to continue enhancing their own Judaic knowledge and educational expertise; capable of inspiring, guiding and supervising colleagues from multiple disciplines; and, ideally, available for more than a single summer.


The mandate of the Jewish Programming Director is to attempt to touch all aspects of the camp and organically integrate meaningful, purposeful, quality Jewish content and experiences that add to the magic and joy of the camp program. The Jewish Programming Directors will work together with camp directors to strengthen Jewish life, Jewish learning, Jewish identity, and Israel experiences for campers and staff alike.


The Jewish Programming Director position is funded through a generous grant from the AVI CHAI Foundation, and pays $7500. The JPD must be in residence for the summer season, and available for pre-camp preparations, training, and orientation.


Participating JCC resident camps are located in California, Georgia, Maine, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Canada.
