Joining the incredible team at Camp Massad may be right for you! If you are a team player, love working with children, and enjoy living in a beautiful camp environment, Camp Massad is where you will be calling your summer home!
Being a staff at Camp means that you will be making a big impact on the lives of your campers, so we trust that your enthusiasm, knowledge, and great attitude will only enrich the experience for the entire Mishpachat Massad.
We understand of course, that hiring a staff member goes both ways! We are always looking for the best staff members, but we also look for staff who will get the most out of the camping experience. Each potential staff member (or even returning ones), can submit an application and interview request with our Director via this page, and once again join us next summer up at Camp!
Once the summer session has begun, we expect our staff to be examples to the campers, and give 100% effort throughout the summer. Yes, working at camp is a demanding job - but we will make sure that you have the time you need to refresh yourself, and also provide lots of fun activities to do as staff throught the summer.
