Prerequisite: MUST have attended and passed benchmarks for our Leaders in Training program (formerly known as ACT1)
Our Counselors in Training is a 4-week residential program for those who have completed our Leaders in Training program (previously known as ACT 1). Our CIT program begins with two weeks of on-the-job training alongside experienced mentors. By designing, implementing, and evaluating large group activities, participants gain proficiency in some of the biggest challenges a counselor might face. They also spend time developing age-appropriate activities, practicing public speaking as well as learning interview techniques and resume building skills.
Program graduates who successfully complete the training and hit all of the required benchmarks will join fellow staff as paid counselors for the final two weeks of camp.
Applications for our Counselors in Training program will be available in our online registration system beginning Friday, December 16th. Applications for our CIT program will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all six spaces are filled. We will contact all applicants to schedule a phone interview. This process mirrors our staff hiring process, preparing youth for both future employment and higher education opportunities.
