Our dynamic team of camp staff work hard to make every day… THE BEST DAY!!!

Many of our staff are former campers and bring with them the spirit, passion and love for Camp Ruach that their counselors instilled in them.

Each summer, we find the best of the best for their position. All staff are interviewed, receive background checks, and provide references.

Once they are hired, they continue the process through staff training before camp begins and continue staff training throughout the summer.

Camp Ruach’s specialists are adults who develop curriculum and programs in their specialty. They are each trained in their specialty area ranging from culinary arts, to musical theater to athletic coaches and are committed to ensuring your child has new experiences in a safe, fun environment.
