When you join Camp Tevya as a counselor, you commit to participating in pre-camp training, which may be online, by phone or in person. You’ll also need to attend a pre-camp orientation with teaching skill seminars in the week or so before the camp season begins. Israeli staff attend a special additional session in Israel in the spring.
Key 2017 Dates:
- First Year Counselor Training: April 30th and May 21st
- Summer Orientation: June 21st – June 28th
Experienced supervisors will continue your training throughout the summer to enable you to reflect on and strengthen your work: instilling lifetime values such as teamwork, acceptance, sportsmanship and self-esteem; ensuring safety and responsibility; managing any homesickness or discipline… all while teaching fun activities, spending your summer along Lake Potanipo, and living the spirited, Jewish life that is the cornerstone of Camp Tevya.
