Location and Job Title:

Camp & Youth Director
Jewish Community Center of the Lehigh Valley
702 N. 22nd St.
Allentown, PA 18104

Principal Responsibilities:

The Camp & Youth Director has the overall responsibility for the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the JCC's youth and children's programs, including Camp JCC, the JLounge after-school program, Vacation Camp and Snow Days. The Youth & Camp Director plays an integral role in building our growing camp program and being an agent for change and positive growth. The Camp & Youth Director must be a self-starter, capable of working independently and also as part of a team of professionals. The Camp & Youth Director must be capable of "switching gears" - being approachable and fun when working with children and parents, while also being organized and professional when in the office.

The Camp & Youth Director is a full-time position, reporting to the Program Director. The position requires expertise working with children in an informal or experiential environment, such as summer camp or out-of-school programs. The Camp & Youth Director supervises a team of full-time and part-time staff, and works alongside a team of professional colleagues as part of the JCC's program team. This position is an excellent opportunity for a mid-career JCC professional (or someone in a related field) who is looking to take a second or third step in their career.

We are looking for someone who is energetic and motivated, with a positive, can-do attitude. The ideal candidate is a creative problem-solver who can work both independently and as part of a team as the situation dictates. To be successful, the Camp & Youth Director will need to be a self-starter, who is able to set goals and work toward them, and takes an interest in their own personal and professional development.

Salary range: $45,000 - $55,000

Benefits include: Health insurance (employer subsidized), vision insurance, dental insurance, 403(b) retirement plan, generous PTO, flexible work schedule, free family membership, and program discounts.
