JC Cuttler ready for first summer as Assistant Director of Staffing & Programming at Camp Sabra 


Joshua (JC) Cuttler brings more than 10 years of experience at Jewish summer camps to his new role as Assistant Director of Staffing & Programming at Camp Sabra. His camp experience spans across four camps in a variety of roles as a camper, counselor, unit head, programming supervisor, and assistant director. Throughout his many roles, he has worked with every came age group and is excited to create unique programming for each age unit at Camp Sabra. 

“When I first spoke to JC, I realized that he had that something special that we needed. The more our staff got to know him and his skills, the more we knew that he was the final puzzle piece to complete our new admin team at camp,” said Camp Director Kim Sloan. 

As Assistant Director of Staffing & Programming, Cuttler envisions his role as a mentor, coach, and cheerleader for the staff. Although not a Camp Sabra alum, Cuttler is excited to use his unique camp experience to expand and refresh Sabra’s programming during his first summer at camp. Cuttler grew up as a camper at URJ Camp Newman and then came back to join the leadership staff as unit head. He also was a counselor at Camp Mountain Chai where he was later unit head and upper division programmer. He served as assistant director of Camp JCC at the Raleigh-Cary JCC from 2020-21. 

“I could not be more excited to spend my first summer at Sabra. Having the privilege to be part of our camper and staff’s experience at camp this summer is an honor. I am counting down each day to a summer that is bound to be filled with ruach, development, and full of Jewish bonds with one another,” said Cuttler. 


Cuttler’s favorite part of his new role at Camp Sabra is cultivating the best experience possible for campers and staff to come as they are and leave camp the best possible version of themselves. 

“Our staff is finding him to be a supervisor with a listening ear, a shoulder for comfort, and source of a knowledge from which they can learn, “added Sloan. 

Cuttler brings his experiences at other Jewish overnight camps and a fresh set of eyes to Camp Sabra. He also has ideas that will directly impact and boost the staff morale at Sabra, like staff training and appreciation. 

Cuttler grew up in California and received his Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, where he was an active participant in Alpha Epsilon Pi and Hillel.
