Summer Staff

  • You can only provide transformational summer camp experiences if you have the best staff. We see this summer after summer, as the staff that we select to work with our campers, positively impact our campers lives and make BB the most amazing place on earth.

    Many of our staff have grown up at BB and to compliment them we invite staff from Israel and around the world. Whether it is their 1st or 20th summer at camp, our staff form a close community where everyone is supported and challenged to be their best in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.
