Tumalo Day Camp August: Counselor in Training

Counselor in Training for Tumalo Day Camp:

Learn leadership and teamwork skills, while having fun at camp!   CITs are an invaluable part of Tumalo Day Camp.  For youth 13-18 years old, the CIT program provides great experience that youth can draw from as they apply for jobs, hone their own Camp Counselor skills, or even apply to colleges.  

Each CIT is assigned to a small group to assist the Camp Counselor in all activities as well as lead songs and games with the other CITs.  If you would like to be a CIT at Tumalo Day Camp, you must be available all five days of camp, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am – 2:30 pm. 

CITs are also expected to stay overnight for the big group campout (typically Wednesday or Thursday night.). Campouts for summer 2021 are currently not scheduled and pending based on safety precautions due to COVID-19.

The CIT program is very popular and space is limited.  If you don’t get in right away, be sure to add your name to the waitlist and we will do our best to accommodate you. 

*Note: This registration serves as an application to ensure that the person applying is a good fit to be a CIT.  We do our best to find a good fit for everyone, however, we cannot guarantee your spot. If for any reason, you do not get a spot, we will refund your registration fees.

Mandatory Training (Early June, exact dates TBD)

To make sure all of our CITs are well trained and know what is expected of them at camp, we will have a mandatory training at Tumalo State Park.  Traditionally this training is an overnight campout, but may look different this year due to COVID-19.  

Even if you have been a CIT before, training is important to ensure that you bond as a team and that you are a part of planning any special themes or activities for camp.  And, it's fun!

Details will be sent out in an email prior to the training.
