To put it simply, we have the best counselors!

When you send your child to In the City Camp, you can rest assured that your camper will spend the day with mature, energetic counselors he or she will look up to from day one. All of our counselors are Jewish and many attend Jewish day school and/or teach Hebrew school. Several of our counselors have attended Jewish day or overnight camp themselves and want to share their positive summer experiences with our campers.

We hire rising 11th graders as junior counselors. Counselors are rising 12th graders, college students, and college-age young adults.

All counselors and junior counselors participate in interviews and connect us with references who complete candidate questionnaires. They also participate in training sessions before camp begins and attend daily and weekly staff meetings during camp.

We can’t wait for you to meet our amazing counselors!  Here are some fast facts about the people your kids will be talking about all summer long.

  • 65% of counselors have worked with In the City Camp in the past. 35% are amazing new additions!
  • Our college-age counselors attend some of the most respected schools in the country including the University of Arizona, Vanderbilt University, Elon University, University of Maryland, University of Georgia, Indiana University, University of Kentucky, Emory University, Armstrong State University, Binghamton University, Columbia University, and Middlebury College.
  • Our counselors bring a variety of talents, experiences, and Jewish identities to camp. They are athletes, musicians, and artists. They are volunteers, tutors, coaches, babysitters, and mentors in their communities. They are Sunday school teachers; BBYO, Hillel, and Jewish sorority members; Jewish day school graduates, Birthright alum, and Jewish overnight camp staff.
