Location and Job Title:

Songleader / Jewish Educator - Summer 2018
JCC Maccabi Sports Camp
601 14th Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94118

Principal Responsibilities:

JCC Maccabi Sports Camp seeks a Songleader / Jewish Culture Specialist to help create a fun and meaningful musical environment at camp. The Songleader is an integral part of our camp staff team and will work to infuse music and Jewish culture into our camp community. We believe that music is a powerful tool for connecting people and an essential element of camp; the Songleader plays a crucial role in this, creating a culture of music, leading and teaching songs, and contributing to the positive experience of campers and staff members. The Songleader must have the ability and presence to lead songs for different age groups and different sized audiences and should be an energetic and charismatic leader and musician.
The Songleader is expected to participate in the majority of camp programs and bring enthusiasm for music and Jewish education. They will lead songs each day at Morning and Evening Huddles, periodic song sessions, lead and perform Shabbat services and Havdallah, lead musical campfires, and provide support at other camp programs as needed. Playing guitar and being comfortable as the spiritual leader is essential to success in this position.
Camp is a collaborative, supportive, and fun work environment, and being part of our camp staff team means working as a team with counselors, coaches, and leadership staff. The Songleader does not have to be experienced in coaching or playing sports, but should have a desire to participate in all camp programs.
While we are a camp that specializes in sports, we aim to provide our campers with a well-rounded camp experience that includes more than just sports - our campers develop friendships, build community, and connect to Judaism in a fun and supportive environment. In addition to sports, our campers participate in evening activities, Shabbat, electives, cabin time, campfires, and more.

Minimum Qualifications:
