Why Work at Camp?

Each summer we have a terrific staff. Some of our staff grew up at Camp Raanana, while while others came to us after their camper days would have ended. Our staff is made up of college students, educators, and people who just want to be at camp. Despite the different life experiences, interests, and nationalities, they all have one thing in common: a commitment to providing kids with the most positive, fun, and rewarding summer experience possible.

We are looking for staff who are sincerely dedicated to creating the best summer possible for a fantastic group of children. The best staff are compassionate, enthusiastic, good listeners, patient, nurturing, and trustworthy. We look for staff who are team players with leadership skills, easy-going, and know how to have fun.


Friendly and fun staff await you.  We work hard during staff training to encourage team building and help everyone meet and mix.  Plus, our camp is perfectly sized so you can get to know everyone.  You won’t get lost in the crowd.  Trust us, we won’t allow it!


For 8 weeks, Camp Raanana is located in Chelsea, Michigan in a beautiful conservation center, just 25 minutes from Ann Arbor!  Our facilities are vast and include a beautiful lake, sports field, Gaga pit, large Ohel (tent),  amphitheater, Arts and Crafts building, archery range and more.  All located in the woods which makes for  scenic and pristine views, further enhancing the camp experience.
