Counselor - In - Training

Each summer we have 14 and 15 year-olds volunteer their time to work at Playground Camp (grades 1 - 6) in order to gain experience working with children. Part of their day is spent in daily training sessions and the rest is spent directly with the other staff and campers

The ideal candidate for the CIT program is 14 or 15 years old and has an interest in applying for work as a paid counselor when they turn 16.  (Working in the CIT program does not guarantee a paid position)

The CIT program gives promising 14 and 15 year olds an opportunity to gain valuable experience by working 6 weeks full-time.  All CIT candidates must apply and will be interviewed by the CIT Director for acceptance into the program.  CIT’s are evaluated on a weekly basis for continuation after the initial 3-week session.

We will begin accepting applications in January and will continue to take them until May 1st.

Parents:  This is the time for the applicant to begin to communicate with us directly, and time for the parent to allow this to happen.  Please let your child do the communicating.  While we understand that parents will have questions, we must begin to let the applicants grow and the CIT program is a wonderful place to start!
