Our campers come from communities around the Greater Washington area, Baltimore, Richmond, Northern Virginia, etc. Some are day school students, for others, this is the only time they spend with other Jews.

In terms of staff, we have about 50% staff retention from year to year which means we’re always looking for talented folks to do different things at camp. Our staff come from around the world – we have a significant contingent from the UK, from Israel, and even places like Australia and New Zealand. Many of our staff are college-age, but several of them are also post-college and specialize in one of our activity areas. As an example, here are some of the positions we’re looking for:

• Archery Specialist
• Art Specialist
• Lifeguards
• Golf Specialist
• Martial Arts Specialist
• Modern Dance Specialist
• Mountain Biking Specialist
• Outdoor Education / Tripping Specialist
• Ropes Course Specialist
• Soccer Specialist
• Sports Specialist
• Tennis Specialist

One of the great things about Capital Camps is that we combine a really great, professional staff with state-of-the-art facilities. Visitors to camp always comment on how nice our cabins are, the equipment we use on our sports fields and at the waterfront. It makes working for Capital Camps that much better to be supported by a quality infrastructure.
