Jewish Educator / Jewish Life Director

Description: The Jewish Life Director is a key member of our summer leadership team.  This person focuses on bringing Jewish learning and celebration to the Camp Inc. community.   This person will work closely throughout the summer with our campers, counseling staff, business specialists, and leadership to create an organic, joyful, and fully integrated approach to Jewish Life.   The ideal candidate would bring a love of Judaism, an interest in business, and an excitement for exploring approaches, strategies and programming that seamlessly bring the two together. 

This is a seasonal position that requires living onsite at camp (in Steamboat Springs, CO) from 6/7/16 to 8/14/16, with part-time, off-site work beginning this spring.  The Jewish Program Coordinator will work under the direction of the Camp Director and Associate Director.

About Camp Inc.: The Camp Inc. Business Academy is an elite business-focused overnight camp, where 6th to 12th graders come from across the globe to receive the skills necessary to become future leaders and innovators. Our unique program gives campers an opportunity to develop confidence, leadership, and Jewish identity through hands-on experience in Startups, Finance, Marketing & Design, or Coding.

Responsibilities:

The Jewish Life Director is a positive Jewish role model for the entire camp community and serves as a Jewish resource to all campers and staff. This person is responsible for bringing our Jewish core values to life and drawing on their own inspiration and expertise to build upon the programs below:

  •  Tikkun Olam – We have a responsibility to structure our lives, families and businesses in a way that allows us to give back to the world, financially or physically. The Jewish Life Director will facilitate the Camp Inc. Teen Fund – a program where campers visit non-profits and grant real funds back to them.
  • Tikkum Middot – We have an obligation to treat ourselves with respect and have a moral and ethical approach to the world around us, personally and professionally.  Successful businesses today have a social responsibility to their employees, their customers, and the world around them. The Jewish Life Director will work with the lead business specialists to integrate appropriate and meaningful Jewish content into their curriculum.
  • Kehillah Kedoshah – In our holy community, we have an obligation to support each other’s goals and needs. The Jewish Life Director is responsible for instilling a specific set of values across the camp community which contributes to the physical and emotional well-being of our campers, staff and guests. This is accomplished through the Camp Inc. Chai Tile program, where campers earn life tiles for exhibiting extraordinary behavior and contributing to our community.
  • Shabbat Shalom – Camp Inc. promotes a work-life balance. Through the celebration of Shabbat, we provide our community with an opportunity to cease doing business, slow down, reflect on what was accomplished and evaluate what is important.  The Jewish Life Director is responsible for coordinating, planning, and leading Judaic content including, but not limited to, camper-led Friday night services, after dinner song sessions, Saturday morning Shabbat experiences, Shabbat electives (Shalectives), and Havdalah.
  • Eretz Yisrael - Israel is a global leader in technological advancements and shaping entrepreneurship as we know it today, and is itself, an example of a successful startup. We give campers an opportunity to connect with Israel through Israeli businesses, mentors and staff. The Jewish Life Director will work with our Schlichim (Israeli staff members) to help them plan and lead activities centered on Israeli culture. 

In addition, as a member of the leadership staff, the Jewish Life Director is responsible for:

  • Coordinating faculty visitors and their integration into the Camp Inc. program, and their general comfort at camp
  • Staff Orientation: Participating in pre-camp staff orientation, including developing and leading meaningful and relevant Judaic sessions
  • Be a member of the Leadership Team: Attend regular meetings, participate in formulation and implementation of camp policy, Shmira, various other responsibilities
  • Communicate with Associate Director and Director at Camp Inc. on a regular basis leading up to camp
  • Work with Camp Inc. Business Specialists to integrate Jewish content in to their summer curriculum through regular pre-camp phone and video calls
  • Begin planning Friday night services, Shabbat experiences, and other religious focused camp programs

 

Qualifications:

  • Strong background and experience in Jewish camping and/or related fields
  • Desire and ability to work with children and young adults in a camp setting
  • Ability to get up in front of 100 people, generate excitement, and retain attention while leading programming
  • College graduate or equivalent
  • Minimum of 2 years’ experience as a Jewish Educator
  • Well-versed in Jewish culture with access to educational resources and topics
  • Be a self-starter and able to work with minimum amount of supervision
  • Ability to lead and facilitate participatory camp-style Shabbat services, Jewish rituals, and educational programs.
  • Excitement  to teach, model, and live by Jewish concepts and values in our camp community
  • Ability to communicate with, relate to, and serve as an example to all campers and staff
  • Ability to give and receive guidance, constructive feedback, and support
  • Ability to use Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
