It's not just a job. It's an adventure!

A summer at MJCC Day Camp is a life-changing experience not only for our campers, but our staff as well. More than just a summer job, employment at MJCC Day Camp means being a part of our family. Just as we challenge our campers to take risks and grow, we have the same expectations for our staff. MJCC Day Camp staff members are driven, compassionate, and professional - and they certainly know how to have a good time.

MJCC Day Camp provides training and professional growth, teaching critical skills that can be taken beyond camp into any kind of career. Camp staff members are entrusted with an incredible amount of responsibility and unparalleled opportunities for developing leadership skills at a young age.

Employers say they look for camp experience on resumes because they know camp translates into:

• An ability to work well under pressure
• The ability to multitask
• A strong sense of teamwork
• An ability to work well with other types of people
• High creativity and problem solving skills

We are looking for individuals who enjoy working with children to help us make this summer the best one yet! If you like working with kids, are ready for an upbeat work atmosphere, want something meaningful to do, and are excited to have some fun, MJCC Day Camp is the place for you!
