NJY Camps - Camp Nesher 

A Lifetime Experience is a staff’s summer at NJY Camps in Lake Como. Located just 2 hours north of New York City situated in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania are two unique Jewish sleep away camps serving two distinct populations.

Camp Nesher for Orthodox boys and girls aged 8-15 and Camp Shoshanim, serving Orthodox girls aged 7-16. Both offer excellent ropes, waterfront, sports and arts programs. These Lake Como camps are two of the group of NJY Camps who hire alot of Kiwis every year. NJY Camps easily hire the most kiwis for their group of camps than any other group of camps. We work closely with NJY Camps to ensure they are able to hire some great staff.  

"Staff programming available in the evenings. We give staff a summer they won’t soon forget."
