Working at Camp Ruach is more than a summer job. You will gain invaluable skills that will transfer to every other aspect of your life. Working at camp is an opportunity to grow and to positively impact your own life - all while having some fun in the sun!
Unit Heads train and supervise a team of counselors, support campers development and camp experience, and communicate with guardians. Travel is a significant part of these older camper units including day trips, one-night overnights, and/or week-long overnights. Unit Heads are part of the senior staff team and work closely with the Camp Director and Assistant Director. We look forward to welcoming new unit heads to our senior staff team - a close knit group of supportive, hard-working, passionate, and silly adults!
Camp Ruach is committed to creating a positive, meaningful, and enjoyable summer for its campers and counselors. Join the Camp Ruach Family today! Adults need camp too!
Aside from gaining critical life skills that will benefit you in every aspect of your life, there are many other perks to the summer job!
For the position of Unit Head, we're looking for adults who have experience working with children and with supervision of others. This is a perfect position for a teacher or a parent - we love having staff children as part of our camp! Prior camp experience preferred.
Unit Heads will need to be available June 27-August 19, 2022 (closed July 4) 8:00-4:30 PM daily. Some pre-camp work is required but the hours are flexible and can mostly be done at home.
THE SHIMON AND SARA BIRNBAUM JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER is a non-sectarian social service agency located on 14 acres on Talamini Road in Bridgewater. The JCC opened its doors to the community in December 1999 after years of planning and fundraising by a passionate group of local families that were driven to bring a JCC to our tri-county area.
The JCC is an agency of the Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties and serves residents of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties with fitness, recreation, social, cultural and educational programming for the entire community. The JCC is the central address of our widely spread, diverse Jewish community and serves as coordinator and locale for many community-wide events and for programs of Jewish education & culture. Universal humanistic Jewish values and ethics serve as the foundation for our JCC. The JCC is governed by a Board of Directors that works with JCC Professional Staff to fulfill our mission of providing quality programs and services to meet the needs and wants of the Jewish and general communities.
The JCC facility includes heated indoor and outdoor salt-based pools. A dome enclosed outdoor pool is available in the off-season for year-round use. The JCC has a newly renovated and expanded fitness center, group fitness studio, spin studio and gymnasium. We offer more than 70 group fitness classes/week, including the internationally acclaimed Les Mills Fitness Program.
