Application & Resources

Do you have good summer camp skills? Like working in a great Jewish atmosphere? Are you interested in working for Camp Ramah in New England this summer?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions then you should apply for a staff position at Camp Ramah New England this summer by filling out the Staff Application Forms.

Click here to complete the Staff Application online.

After you complete the application, you will need to download and complete the Hebrew Questionnaire.

If you are unable to complete the application materials online, please contact Pamela Kekst. Below are paper copies of the Reference Form, in case you need it. You may turn them in by mailing, emailing, or faxing them to the camp office.

Staff Application Reference Form

Massachusetts State Law dictates that CRNE must receive three written references from all staff candidates. You may print three copies of the above reference form, OR you may ask your references to write you a letter of recommendation, on letterhead. Either is fine – we provide the above reference form as an aide — you are NOT required to use it.

CRNE understands that gathering three references can be time-consuming. You may return the four-page staff application form and the Hebrew questionnaire to us, and send the references separately at a later date.
