Come work at a URJ 6 Points Specialty Camp

URJ 6 Points Specialty Camps consist of 3 great Reform Jewish camps, located across the United States, that attract campers and staff from all parts of North America (and beyond). These elite specialty sleepaway camps focus on sports, science & technology, and the arts, respectively. URJ 6 Points Sports Academy is in Asheville, NC, URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy is in Byfield, MA, and URJ 6 Points Creative Arts Academy is in Westchester, PA. When attending or working at URJ Specialty camps, campers and staff are surrounded by those with similar passions and get to immerse themselves together in these interests. Staff get the special opportunity to learn how to coach and mentor others in their chosen field while continuing to grow alongside campers. While each camp is unique, all 3 camps have wonderful communities in which children, teens, and adults have found a home.

Why work for URJ 6 Points Specialty Camps?

  • Professional Development: When you work at our camps, you develop skills that will enhance your job marketability such as communication, collaboration, problem-solving, empathy, and work ethic. In addition, you will gain knowledge in the specialties of the camp in which you work.

You will be a fun role model for campers and make friendships with your co-workers that will last a lifetime.
  • Be part of a Reform Jewish community: At URJ 6 Points Specialty Camps, staff come to us from a variety of backgrounds and can find their own path on their Jewish journey. Living in an immersive Jewish community offers our staff the opportunity to strengthen their Jewish identities in ways that are meaningful to them because Judaism is woven into daily programing at camp. Each week, Shabbat is celebrated as well as daily rituals throughout the day. Non-Jewish staff are also important members of our camp communities and are encouraged to participate in learning about a culture different from their own.

Counselor: Counselors are directly responsible for the health, safety, and well-being of all campers in their dorm group, a counselor has day-to-day involvement with each camper as an individual and with the entire group. Counselors work all over camp in positions that align with their strengths and professional goals from assisting to creating and leading activities throughout the day at camp.

Social Media and Communication Manager: The social media and communications manager’s role is to show the broader camp community what is going on at camp. This person is responsible for curating and maintaining social media content for the camp community, along with the camp blog, and works with the camp staff.

The videographer then uses footage for making weekly/session videos set to music, short videos for special days each session, and for working with the Camp Directors to produce promotional videos for use throughout the year.

Our clergy, professional staff, and temple members share their commitment to education and the celebration of Jewish life. Our curriculum emphasizes God, Torah, and the people of Israel through the study of Jewish religious practice and prayers, holiday and customs, history, Hebrew and a commitment to Kol Israel. Our inclusivity program, known as Kulanu, is nationally recognized by Matan and has been part of our school for more than 30 years as we strive to meet the needs of each student and family, supporting them and creating learning approaches so everyone is fully involved in the learning community at AEMT.

Jewish tradition is a rich and deep sourcebook that guides, informs and illuminates, and directs the way people understand the world and make decisions.

It comprises the Jewish people today and throughout history. That Eretz Yisrael encompasses the land, state and people of Israel, both today and throughout history. That Hebrew is the universal language of Am Yisrael and, therefore, is necessary in order to have full access to Jewish Peoplehood.
