Pinemere Camp is special because our staff is special. Our staff is not simply a group of adult supervisors, but very much a part of the camp family.
From near and far, we assemble a group of approximately 100 staff to help make camp incredible. It is our goal to provide a very well supervised environment for our campers, which is supported by our staff-to-camper ratio of 3:1. This staff is hired for their skills and enthusiasm, insight, and dedication to making the summer fun for every child at Pinemere.
Many staff members have attended our camp as children and CITs, but even those that come to us as adults represent the values that Pinemere prides itself on. Our average counselor is approximately 20 years of age, and our average supervisor is 25 years of age.
Our camp staff are screened, interviewed and selected by our camp’s Directors. Each person completes a rigorous Orientation & Training Program before camp, and participates in Pinemere’s in-service training throughout the season.
Summer positions include:
- Supervisors – must be 21 years of age or older
- Counselors – Junior Counselors, General Counselors, and Specialty Counselors
- Support Staff – Office, Medical, Food Service, Maintenance, Drivers, Security, Housekeeping
Supervisors generally arrive 3 weeks before camp begins, while Counselors arrive 1-2 weeks before camp begins. Specific arrival dates will be announced in the Winter.
Our Counselors, Support Staff, and Supervisors make our camp a safe and nurturing place in the summer. Strong Jewish role models and highly skilled instructors create an incredible environment for our campers.
