Our CIT Director will insure that our CIT program is a hands-on training program. The CIT program is for 13-14 year olds who want to learn the skills necessary to be a great camp counselor. Participants will work with the Director in the classroom and within camp groups. After their training they will be evaluated by the Director. You must be able to commit for the entire 2 week program.
Applicants will be interviewed during the month of June to select the best candidates for this program. Applicants should sign up on camp forms without payment before May 1 and will be given or sent by mail a CIT application. Payment will be accepted upon acceptance into the program.
The program covers: planning activities, teaching and modifying games, behavior modification, creativity, communication with parents, supervision at the waterfront, setting goals, active listening, working with younger campers, camp communication, what to do on a rainy day, team work and first aid. The CIT’s will be exposed to the skills necessary to be a great counselor and have a chance to see if this kind of work is for them. In addition to the training, the CIT’s will participate in some CIT only recreational activities and may be asked to accompany Day Camp on field trips.
