The Staff Experience

Are you looking to make a difference in the lives of young people as you spend your summer with some of the best coworkers around?

Maccabi Sports Camp has, over the years, become known for being an excellent place to work, and with good reason!

The highlight was just being around other staff. We were all good friends by the end of camp. It wasn’t just one highlight, but the chance to get closer with everyone was something I’ll never forget.

Here are some of the upsides of working at a summer camp:

  • Opportunity for growth, leadership, maturity, responsibility and skill building critical to success in future employment
  • Valued as a key to the organization’s success
  • Direct, daily interaction with the most valued aspect of our organization – our campers
  • A genuine voice in our program
  • Rewarding opportunity to see immediate results from your work
  • A collaborative environment of teammates and co-workers
  • Friendships that last beyond the summer
  • Competitive salary that includes room and board (healthy, organic meals)
  • Beautiful Bay Area location with amazing weather
  • Access to state-of-the-art athletic facilities


We’re as dedicated to investing in the leaders on our staff as we are to the growth of our campers. In fact, one simply can’t happen without the other. This is why few summer jobs offer as much personal satisfaction or opportunity to develop life and resume-building skills as being a camp staff member, especially when you have a passion for sports and valuable insights to share.
