Camp Tel Noar is a member of Eli and Bessie Cohen family of camps and boasts a 75-year history of giving children ages 7 to 16 camp experiences to last a lifetime. Recruiting is underway to hire a director who is present, bares charisma, and leads with robust excitement for value of the Jewish overnight camp experience. Tel Noar’s Director delivers overall management, leadership, and vision to take the camp to a new level of excellence in Jewish camping.

Set in Southern New Hampshire, about one hour from Boston, Camp Tel Noar is as a pluralistic, Jewish overnight camp. Tel Noar brings together boys and girls ages 7 to 16 each summer in a joyful environment, nurturing campers, promoting independence and self-confidence, fostering life-long friendships, building a community, and strengthening campers’ Jewish identities.

Under the direction of the Eli and Bessie Cohen Camps President, the Director is the leader and public face of Camp Tel Noar.
