Where is 6 Points Sports Academy located?

After I submit my application, when will I hear from 6 Points?

After your application is received and processed by our office, you will be contacted by Assistant Director Nina Goodhue to set up a Zoom interview.

What happens if I am hired to work at 6 Points?

Upon accepting a position, you will receive an offer letter and hiring packet via email. The hiring packet is to be signed and submitted to the camp office within two weeks. You will then start receiving emails from the camp office updating you on information and forms you’ll need to get ready for the summer.

When do I get paid?

Paychecks are issued at the completion of your contract for American staff. International staff will be paid via Cliq debit card twice during the summer.

Does 6 Points have a curfew for staff?

We expect everyone to perform at the peak of their abilities during the day. A good night’s sleep is the best way to keep yourself healthy and on top of your game. All staff are required to be in their living quarters by curfew each evening.

When do I have time off?

All staff members are entitled to one day off each session. These days are assigned based on the staff member’s role in camp. Counselors/Assistant Coaches are also assigned an hour off each day during one elective period. Staff working multiple sessions will also have a day off between sessions.

Where will I live?

Living accomodations are comfortable and clean! All campus housing is dormitory-style, similar to college. Counselors/Assistant Coaches will have a shared room with their Co-Counselor on camper floors. Other staff members will live on staff-only floors. There is a shared common bathroom on each floor of the dorm buildings.

Will I have to attend a staff orientation?

Absolutely! Our comprehensive staff  development program is held prior to the arrival of the campers. You will receive a specific arrival date depending on your role at camp. Staff orientation provides the tools and skills necessary to guarantee a successful summer for all, and does so within the framework of building a Jewish community. Our goals are to give the staff members the chance to get know one another and start building working relationships, as well as to prepare staff members for the challenges of working in a residential camp setting. The program includes a wide variety of activities, such as group-building experiences, training sessions, and program planning time.

What if I am a vegetarian or have dietary restrictions?

Special diets, e.g., vegetarian, gluten-free, food allergies, etc. can be accommodated. We are a nut-free camp. Please call our office at 561-208-1650 or email Assistant Director Hannah Ross to discuss any dietary concerns.

Will I have access to my e-mail?

Computers are available for staff use in the Staff Lounge. Staff members have free access to Wifi on campus.

How will I do my laundry at camp?

Camp provides laundry service once a session and in between sessions. If you prefer to do your own laundry, there are laundry facilities in each dorm for your use.

May I bring my vehicle to camp?

Yes, you may bring your car to camp. There is a designated staff parking area.

What can I expect from my experience on staff at 6 Points Sports Academy?

Being on staff at any residential camp is perhaps the most difficult and most fulfilling job you will ever have. A summer at 6 Points Sports Academy will be challenging, both physically and emotionally, but most of all it will be fun! As a staff member at 6 Points, you become part of a welcoming community, positively impact the lives of campers, and create friendships that will last a lifetime.
