Interested in being a camp counselor?

At SAC we are looking for three qualifications in every staff member:

1) Leadership Qualities: Every staff member that walks onto our camp is a role model and a leader. How you act in and out of camp is something that we take into consideration. We believe that summer camps have the potential to change a child’s life and we want you to be a part of that process. That is why we ask all staff members to adhere to keeping Shabbat, kashrut, and laws of modesty throughout the day [males wearing shirts and shorts at all times; women wear shorts or skirts to their knees and shirts that cover their shoulders and neck]

2) Qualifications: Whether you are applying to be a counselor, kitchen staff, or program staff member, we want to know what makes you the best candidate for that position. Past experience, personality traits and skills are all things that we take into consideration when hiring staff members. Please note that you must be entering into your Senior year of high school or older to qualify for a staff position at SAC.

3) SAC Connection: What is your connection to SAC? Why are you choosing to be a part of our camp? An applicants camp history is one of the factors that we take into consideration. Please note that SAC history is ONE OF THE factors we consider when looking into an applicant. A history at SAC will not automatically guarantee you a position at camp, but it is something we consider. At the same time, we love to broaden our horizons and bring in new staff members who can bring their talents to our camp.
