One Happy Camper NJ of Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest is connecting potential staff candidates with general counselor and specialist positions at Jewish day and overnight camps serving our community. Ages 16+ are eligible for day camp, and graduating high school seniors and older are eligible for overnight camp positions. For adults, working at camp is a great way to subsidize the cost of camp for your kids.
