Geocaching is a competitive treasure hunt where people look for hidden packets or messages by using a compass and a map as a lot of resourcefulness. If you haven't done geo caching but are open to learning, Camp Grossman will train you. Geo caching is a global hobby with packets hidden all over the world so you may choose to use your new skills outside of camp too! If you enjoy hiking and helping campers solve puzzles this job is for you!
Teach and lead the campers in geo caching, a competitive sport in which participants find their way to various checkpoints across rough country with the aid of a map and compass, the winner being the one with the lowest elapsed time.
The JCC is deeply committed to valuing and celebrating the uniqueness of each constituent. We welcome staff and participants from diverse backgrounds. While being proudly Jewish, we strive in every way to provide an open and welcoming setting for all, irrespective of personal practices, beliefs or background. We are guided by JCC Greater Boston core values- Belonging, Joyfulness, Collaboration and Transformation-which resonate with many who do not identify as Jewish.
As our alumni can tell you: Camp Grossman summers are an amazingly fun way to spend your summers while developing great skills which will serve you well in future jobs and life in general. The Grossman team is a dynamic group which works as a tight team to create wonderful experiences for children while helping them build confidence and skills. Camp Grossman is located on 75 acres of the Hale Reservation in Dover. Staff come from all over the Greater Boston area.
Camp Grossman anticipates welcoming 600+ campers and over 200 staff this summer. Staff must be available for the full season, June 28-August 20, unless otherwise arranged. Camp day is 8:40 AM -4:10 PM, Monday through Friday, with orientation the week of June 21 and staff meetings on 3 Monday evenings throughout the summer. Most counselors and staff also work 1 or 2 additional family nights or overnights, depending on their position and unit at camp.
In addition to a rewarding position where you care for a community, the JCC Greater Boston provides competitive benefits including:
JCC Greater Boston takes the welfare and safety of staff and children very seriously. We have aligned all of our operating procedures with guidance from the CDC, DEEC (Department of Early Education and Care) and the local and state Departments of Public Health. Our practices include ensuring proper physical distancing, sanitation, hygiene, and use of face coverings to promote the health of our staff and children.
While camp will be held primarily outdoors, it remains crucial that staff and children continue to follow the appropriate COVID safety guidelines.
Camp staff will be required to wear appropriate personal protective gear during camp. Children and staff are expected to wear masks at all times, except when in the water or eating. Physical distancing will be adhered to throughout the camp day. Bunk sizes will be small and counselors will work with the same children every day to limit exposure. Children and staff will be encouraged to hand wash often and sanitizer will be readily available. Additionally, we conduct a health screen for all children and staff prior to entering camp each day. This screening includes a questionnaire about symptoms and possible exposures as well as a temperature check.
JCC Greater Boston will also conduct remote interviews and virtual meetings ahead of camp.
