Job Description:

Camp Tawonga is a co-ed residential children’s summer camp located outside Yosemite National Park. The campers range in age from 7-17 and participate in 1-week, 2-week, or 3-week programs throughout the summer. The Camp Tawonga Staff is a family of 160 dedicated individuals, working together to create a vital Jewish community where children thrive. This outstanding team includes people with both Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds.

Camp Tawonga’s mission is to foster positive self-image for campers, create a cooperative community, teach children to live in partnership with nature and offer children a positive experience of spirituality. The work at Camp is demanding, with long hours, high intensity, and little privacy. The rewards are great: the joy of helping children grow, the beauty of the mountains and river, and the camaraderie of working with other enthusiastic and caring staff.

Naturalists engage children in creative activities to foster nature appreciation and environmental education. Lead day hikes, river rock hops, fire building, orienteering, and storytelling, as well as garden-based programming in our organic garden. Implement traditional Tawonga programs and create new activities to engage campers about natural history, ecology, Jewish connections to nature, and Native American culture.

Lifeguard certification required (if you don't already possess a certification, Tawonga can help reimburse the cost of certifying). WFA/R preferred. Dynamic stage presence and BA (or 1-year field exp.) preferred.
