Madrichimot (Counselors)
Our university-aged madrichim, most of whom grew up at Camp Gesher, foster the development of each and every camper, building a close-knit community based on friendship and respect. It’s not uncommon to see counselors with older and younger campers playing and laughing side-by-side, eating a meal together, or deep in discussion. At Gesher, our counselor-to-camper ratio is never more than 1:5. Counselors sleep in the cabins with campers, providing supervision and ensuring safety and security.

Waterfront Staff
Our waterfront staff are trained and certified by the Lifesaving society and must have a NLS certification or in some cases a Bronze Cross.

Medical Staff
Two members of the medical staff live at camp each summer in our mirpa’ah (wellness center). All are experienced, licensed medical professionals who are accessible to campers and staff 24 hours a day. We consult with local physicians for care when necessary and have a hospital approximately 45 minutes away, in case of an emergency.


Mitbach (Kitchen) - Food Service Staff
Each summer, former campers and hired professionals work together to prepare meals and keep our dining facility clean, healthy, and safe. Our staff members are selected based on their experience and desire to provide healthy, kosher meals for our campers. The kitchen staff will adapt meals to meet special camper and staff eating requirements.

Each summer specialists are hired for various activities including arts and crafts, sports, Hebrew, music, tiyul (camping), tikkun olam (community service), and special projects. These specialists have experience in their area and focus their time and energy on providing fun and effective programming.
