Counselor In Training (CIT)

This program is designed to provide leadership opportunities that prepare teens to become staff members at camp, as well as productive members of their community. The CIT program includes training in all aspects of a counselor’s job at camp, participation in service projects, training sessions on such topics as basic child development and behavior management, counseling techniques and best practices, communication and leadership, environmental stewardship, and community service.

Training is scheduled for  June 1-4, 2021. This may be moved to online if needed due to school make-up dates. Along with the initial training, CITs will be scheduled to work two to six weeks of JC Parks day camps.

CIT’s must be entering grades 7 – 11 to be eligible to volunteer JC Parks day camps. Entry into the program is competitive and is based upon the completed application, references and an interview with the camp director.  Anyone not selected for the program will have their fee refunded.
