The Youth & Camp Director has the overall responsibility for the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the JCC’s youth and children’s programs, including Camp JCC, the JLounge after-school program, Vacation Camp and Snow Days. The Youth & Camp Director plays an integral role in building our growing camp program and being an agent for change and positive growth. The Youth & Camp Director must be a self-starter, capable of working independently and also as part of a team of professionals. The Youth & Camp Director must be capable of “switching gears” – being approachable and fun when working with children and parents, while also being organized and professional when in the office.
The Youth & Camp Director is a full-time position, reporting to the Program Director. The position requires expertise working with children in an informal or experiential environment, such as summer camp or out-of-school programs. The Youth & Camp Director supervises a team of full-time and part-time staff, and works alongside a team of professional colleagues as part of the JCC’s program team. This position is an excellent opportunity for a mid-career JCC professional (or someone in a related field) who is looking to take a second or third step in their career.
We are looking for someone who is energetic and motivated, with a positive, can-do attitude. The ideal candidate is a creative problem-solver who is capable of working both independently or as part of a team as the situation dictates. To be successful, the Youth & Camp Director will need to be a self-starter, who is able to set goals and work toward them, and takes an interest in their own personal and professional development.
