Wanted: Families to host Camp By The Sea Summer Shlichim Israeli Counselors

The Milton & Betty Katz Jewish Community Center is excited to welcome three amazing Israeli counselors to work as specialists in our summer camp, Camp By The Sea. Throughout June, July and August. These counselors, or Shlichim in Hebrew, teach children and teens about the history and culture of Israel through hands-on activities, stories, games, songs, dance and crafts.

The JCC is looking for families to host one of these Shlichim for two to three week intervals. Hosting is an amazing opportunity to bond and create lifelong friendships with dynamic individuals, grow closer to Israel and share cross – cultural experiences with your family and guests.

This once in a lifetime opportunity is geared towards families with camp age children, grandparents and others who live in Margate, Ventnor or Longport so that Schlichim are able to get to their job at Camp By The Sea easily each day. Schlichim counselors work at camp daily as do other counselors and are home in evenings and weekends with planned activities and off times sightseeing throughout the Atlantic County area and spending time bonding with your family at home.

If you are interested in becoming a host family, please contact Courtney Deyoung at 609-822-1167 ext 127 or email camp@jccatlantic.org.

In addition, there’s still time to join the fun at Camp by the Sea at the Margate JCC this summer! Camp starts on June 26 and runs through August 18. Sign up for one or more weeks, either consecutively or at different times during the summer. Specialty and teen travel camps are also available. Don’t miss out! For more information, go to jccatlantic.org or visit the Camp by the Sea Facebook page. For information or questions, contact camp@JCCatlantic.org or call the JCC at (609) 822- 1167.
