Why Work Here?
Think back to the individuals who have touched your life and it’s a good bet many of them were past teachers, coaches and mentors. Have you ever asked yourself why these few people played such an important part in your life? We’re confident it’s because they took an interest in you, guided you, and challenged you to be the best you could be. As a staff member at B’nai B’rith Camp, you will have the same opportunity to positively impact the lives of our campers!
Any good camp director will tell you the key to a successful summer is the quality of the staff. Each year, we look for competent, sensitive, and enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to working with children to fill this role. Implementing a dynamic program at our beautiful facility is only meaningful if our staff supports the mission of providing a safe and caring environment for our campers.
Last summer we had over 100 staff members from 12 states and 6 countries help create our unique community. We work hard during staff training to encourage team building and help everyone meet and mix. Plus, our camp is perfectly sized so you can get to know everyone. You won’t be lost in the crowd. Come join the family!
Located on the east shore of Devil’s Lake on the Oregon Coast, B.B. Camp is adjacent to the Suislaw National Forest.

Our facilities are quite extensive and include: heated pool, waterfront, sports filed, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor basketball, amphitheater Arts and Crafts building with ceramics studio and kiln, camp store, game room and more.

Ok, who really works at a summer camp for the cash? Think about it this way – your expenses are almost nil because room and board are covered and you’re not out spending money all summer long. So when the paycheck comes at the end of camp you actually walk away with a good amount of cash. Not bad.
We strives to create a warm, comfortable and safe community for all staff and campers. You’ll make friends for life, challenge yourself, discover skills you never knew you had, make a positive difference in the lives of children, and pocket some cash. Who could ask for more?
It is our hope that as the camp season comes to an end, you’ll look back on your summer as “the best experience of your life” and continue to stay involved for years to come.
