Camp Staff Leadership Institute (CSLI) Application

The application is now closed for the 2021 Camp Staff Leadership Institute.

Camps are still seeking staff members, and we are connecting prospective staff members with camps. If you are interested in a position at a Jewish day camp (ages 16+) or overnight camp (graduating high schools seniors and up), please complete the Camp Staff Interest Form.

For those already enrolled in the Camp Staff Leadership Institute: Enhance your camp staff experience by attending three virtual pre-camp leadership workshops and a short recognition ceremony at the end of camp season. Those who complete the program and their full staff assignment at camp will be awarded a $200 stipend (above any salary from camp) and a CSLI Certificate of Completion from Federation.

Workshops are led by Federation, camp, and youth development experts, focusing on skills relevant to camp and life:
