The Staff Experience

The Camp Young Judaea Midwest staff is a tapestry of individuals who bring their own experience and skill to create a community of hard working and dedicated counselors. Some of our staff have grown up at CYJ Midwest, some have grown up at other camps and some are experiencing overnight camp for the first time. About one-quarter of our staff are Israeli, brought over through the Jewish Agency for Israel. This unique blend enables our staff to relate to each camper in a way that is meaningful and relevant
