Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I have access to the internet?

    Internet access is available to you all day and evening (during your time off only) until curfew at 1AM. You do not have to bring your own laptop however we rarely have spare computers for you to use.

  • How old do I need to be to work at camp?

    To work at Camp Shalom, you need to be a high school or older. We prefer staff applicants who have at least completed High School.

  • What if I am not Jewish?

    Camp Shalom respects all religions and welcomes people of all faiths. We are not an extremely religious camp, but Judaism is a substantial part of our camping style. While you may be a minority at Camp Shalom, it is our experience that non-Jewish staff members are very comfortable with the level and type of Judaism we practice.

  • When do I have time/days off?

    Your position and the area in which you work will determine your time off. All staff have time off each day and most staff have an entire day off each week (5 of the 7 weeks).

  • When do I get paid?

    All staff receive their paycheck at the conclusion of the summer. A pay advance may be worked out with the Camp Director.
