Program Director

Position: Summer Program Director
Organization: JCC Maccabi Sports Camp
Location: Menlo College in Atherton, CA
Term: June 1 – July 31, 2020 - SEASONAL POSITION

The Program Director, a member of the summer leadership team, will play a key role in the planning and implementation of all camp programs. Qualified applicants will be interested in helping to create fun, meaningful, and age-appropriate programs for our campers and staff. Experience working at a Jewish overnight camp is preferred, not required. The Program Director must be a team player, as this person will work closely with other staff members to create and implement programs. While we are a camp that specializes in sports, we aim to provide our campers with a Jewish overnight camp experience that includes evening programs, Shabbat, electives, cabin programs, campfires, and much more.

The Program Director does not have to be experienced in coaching or playing one of our core sports but should have a desire to work at a sports camp and an interest in participating in all camp programs.

About JCC Maccabi Sports Camp
