WELCOME TO THE 2018 KUTZ CAMP STAFF APPLICATION PROCESS! 

Central to the mission and vision of the Kutz Camp program is the level of excellence of the staff we select each summer. Each staff member brings a unique set of qualities, attributes, talents, and knowledge to help enhance our camp community on exponential levels. A summer on staff at Kutz is unlike any other summer camp experience available. In this environment, we encourage a complete reciprocal learning environment on every level, where staff and participants share equally in learning and leading our community, all while embracing individuality and our Reform Jewish values.
