Machane Olami: Global Jewish Camp Fellowship

Working at an American Jewish summer camp is so much more than a job – it’s an experience like no other.  With the Machane Olami: Global Jewish Camp Fellowship, you’ll spend your summer creating lifelong friendships, learning about North American Jewish life, and sharing your story and culture with campers and staff from around the world!

Why work at Jewish Camp?
  • Klal Yisrael: Creating Global Jewish Connections – build your network of Jewish young adults from North America, Israel and all around the world, while being an ambassador from your home country. Bring new ideas and perspectives back to your home Jewish community.
  • Professional Development – add to your CV and gain critical professional skills to help you in your future career
  • Make a Difference – be a role model and create the summer of a lifetime for hundreds of Jewish children
Am I right for the job?

  • Step 4 – Participate in a pre-camp orientation
