2023年的夏令营季节, our Counselor in Training Program (CIT) is for students either entering 8th or 9th grade in the fall 2023 和 by application only. Students entering 9th grade should not have participated in this program before at Day Camp. Students interested must first apply to the program. Camp directors will review each application as they come in 和 acceptance into the program is on a rolling basis. We anticipate it will take roughly 3-4 weeks from the time a student applies to alert them of their status in the program. The program is limited to an enrollment of 15.
The CIT program is designed to be fun, while developing the skills 和 confidence necessary to work with young children. This program is especially useful for those considering spending their future summers as a camp counselor or plan to babysit.
Enrollment in the program is limited to ensure the most effective personal training possible.
CITs spend half of their camp days working with their program leader. Through a variety of team-building games, 解决问题活动, 讨论, 角色扮演, 旅游及其他活动, they will learn how to work with others most effectively, 如何解决冲突, 和 how to run games 和 activities for children.
Afternoons are spent getting h和s-on experience working with children. CITs rotate among several different age groups to get as broad an experience as possible. Feedback 和 support from the counselors 和 teachers, in addition to frequent conversations with their program leader 和 the camp director will help them develop their skills as much as possible.
CITs also enjoy several special activities 和 trips just for them throughout the summer. Past trips have included Dutch Springs, ropes course adventures, escape rooms 和 more.
