The Counsellor-in-Training (CIT) program is run by our amazing Leadership and Wellness Director each and every summer. The program invites youth 15 and 16, prior to July 4th 2023, to participate in staff training, volunteer for weekly practical experiences during Junior and Intermediate camps and develop their leadership skills with our CIT Program Directors. Youth leave the program not only prepared to be a counsellor, but leaders as well. The training includes topics and hands-on skills like resume building, cover letters, peer mediation, conflict resolution on top of how to navigate being a great counsellor to kids at camp. Youth who are 15 are welcome to both be campers during senior and apply for, and if selected, be part of the CIT Program. The program costs $75 to participate.
Youth apply with support of their parents/guardians through the CampBrain portal and then will apply with a resume and cover letter to email@example.com. They will hear back from us after the closing date. If successful, the youth will be invited to interview during the May 6th, 2023 Clean Up Day.
CIT Program participants are part of staff training the first week of July.
For their summer, we will work with them and their family's schedule to have them out for specific weeks as a CIT.
