Camp is an incredible place to develop and launch your career. FJC Internships are amazing opportunities to develop your skills and passions in your professional and academic interest areas, all through the lens of Jewish camp!
Options range from the full semester to just a few days, and everything in between. See below to learn about each internship option, eligibility, and application timeline.
In all of our internships and volunteer opportunities, we are seeking to create teams that reflect the diversity of camp staff from across North America, and around the world. Individuals from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply to ensure we get the best, most creative talent from the field.
Staff Advisory Council (SAC) - Virtual with In-Person Opportunities
Council members will advise FJC on current and future programmatic initiatives, innovation plans, and provide essential insights to improve the staff experience in the Jewish camping field. Special committees and taskforces will also be developed to address relevant field-wide concerns such as: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), Jewish Education, Staff Mental Health & Wellness, and Staff Recruitment/Retention. SAC members will have the opportunity to network with Jewish camp professionals, share best practices, and learn from experts in the field of Jewish camp.
This is a volunteer opportunity, in which board members will gain key experience as lay leaders with a prominent international non-profit organization.
The SAC will meet once a month with the FJC team from October-May and will convene again shortly after the conclusion of camp for a post-summer reflection with an eye towards Summer 2025.
