Working at Camp Ruach is more than a summer job. You will gain invaluable skills that will transfer to every other aspect of your life. Working at camp is an opportunity to grow and to positively impact your own life – all while having some fun in the sun!

Camp Ruach is committed to creating a positive, meaningful, and enjoyable summer for its campers and counselors. Join the Camp Ruach Family today! Adults need camp too!


For the position of Unit Head, we’re looking for adults who have experience working with children and with supervision of others. This unit also has travel as part of the program design - 2 day trips per week. This is a perfect position for a teacher or a parent – we love having staff children as part of our camp! Prior camp experience preferred.

Unit Heads will need to be available June 27-August 19, 2022 (closed July 4) 8:00-4:30 PM daily. Some pre-camp work is required but the hours are flexible and can mostly be done at home.

Unit Heads train and supervise a team of counselors, support campers development and camp experience, and communicate with guardians. Unit Heads are part of the senior staff team and work closely with the Camp Director and Assistant Director. We look forward to welcoming new unit heads to our senior staff team - a close knit group of supportive, hard-working, passionate, and silly adults!
