Can you work only one month?
While many positions require a full summer commitment, there are certain positions and occasionally special circumstances where a single month would be acceptable.
I didn’t go to Camp Yavneh, can I still work there?
Yes. While preference is given to candidates who rise through the ranks of Camp Yavneh, many of our amazing staff come to us from outside our family.
Do you have positions for parents to come with their kids?
Yes. Many of our staff members bring their skills to camp as a way to afford their children the summer camp experience. Please be in touch if you have a special skill.
Does your staff get any days off over the summer?
Yes, Most weeks our staff gets a full 24 hour period off and they are welcome to leave camp. There are a couple weeks during the summer that the counselors get an evening off.
I am not a U.S. citizen, can I still work at camp?
If you don’t hold a U.S. Passport or proper documents to work (such as a green card), you will need to get an appropriate visa from your country. Let us know if you are interested and we can direct you on who to contact.
Is there any place to go near camp on my days off?
Camp is conveniently located about 30 minutes to 2 major NH cities and also about 35 minutes to the NH and Maine coasts. In addition we are only 90 minutes to Boston.
