Counsellors at Camp Gesher are known for their endless energy, passionate mentor-ship and continual drive to create the best environment possible for our campers. When hiring staff, we look for people who personify these qualities – leading by example, having diverse backgrounds and a wide variety of skills and knowledge that can be shared with campers.
Our Israeli counsellors are part of the “ShinShin” program. They are 18 year old emissaries sent by Jewish Agency for Israel to communities around North America to educate youth on Israel and Israeli culture. Our ShinShinim work at Jewish Day Schools in Toronto throughout the year.
Most importantly, our staff share their skills and knowledge with campers. Our goal is for campers to leave the summer with new abilities and the confidence to try new things. From water skiing, basketball and canoeing to music, arts & crafts, we hold our counsellors personally accountable for creating an environment that allows kids of all ages and expertise to thrive.
