Camp Twelve Trails is an innovative, new Jewish day camping venture from the YM & YWHA of Washington Heights & Inwood, the JCC on the Hudson, and the Riverdale YM-YWHA. Generously funded by UJA-Federation of New York, it presents a creative, experiential template for Jewish educators to reach upwards of 600 youth over the summer.

Supervising each individual neighborhood, or specialty area of programming, overall responsibilities include articulating a rich, Jewish values-based vision for programming, hiring staff capable of implementing this vision, coaching staff throughout the summer, developing engaging lesson plans, and leading activities large, and small.
Full-time Seasonal, Mondays through Fridays, June 29 – August 18, including 5-8 hours a week of pre camp time devoted to curriculum and program development as well as general camp prep in May and June.
Competitive summer compensation packages available.
