The Camp Counselor as Educator and Role Model for Core Jewish Values and Practices of the Conservative Movement

By Zachary Lasker

September 2009

Jewish camps commit to socializing campers toward a positive Jewish identity and instilling in them particular Jewish values and practices. Camp counselors – the staff members most likely to impact campers – must create an atmosphere in which campers develop a love of Jewish living and carry out responsibilities as educators and role models for Jewish values and practices core to the camp mission statement. While counselors may achieve general success socializing campers toward a positive Jewish identity, insufficient training, management and evaluation lead them to fall short as educators and role models.
