Calling all rising 8th and 9th graders! This summer, meet friends that will last a lifetime, build your resume, gain teamwork and leadership skills, and make a difference in children’s lives, all while having an epic and fun summer! Participating in counselor-in-training programs at MJCCA Day Camps is the ideal summer opportunity! Please contact Abbe Roth at email@example.com for more information.
Rising 8th Graders
Becoming an LIT is the perfect introduction to learning tobe a camp counselor! It’s your 8th grader’s first taste of a leadership role, where they can bring enthusiasm and exciting camp moments to a regular camp day. LITs will have hands-on experience working with Camp Isidore Alterman campers. These individuals will focus on the Jewish value of ruach (spirit), bringing positivity to the camp community. LITs participate in weekly cohort meetings featuring leaders from the community to focus on leadership development, team building, and best practices for working with children. They are eligible to receive hours of community service.
Rising 9th Graders
SITs will have hands-on experience working with campers at Camp Isidore Alterman. These creative and hardworking individuals focus on the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (social justice/community service) with weekly projects to make the world better and engage campers. SITs participate in twice-weekly cohort meetings focusing on leadership development, moving from ideas to action, and best practices for working with children. They are eligible to receive hours of community service.
The LIT and SIT programs are a proud partner of JumpSpark, The Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta’s teen initiative, and are not eligible for financial assistance or the Multiple-Week Discount.
