The Counselor In Training Program for SummerKids gives teens aged 13 to 18 an opportunity to learn and practice job skills in an encouraging environment and serve as a role model to younger kids, all while having fun at camp! This experience will provide an authentic opportunity for teens to practice independence, leadership, being proactive, and fostering a growth mindset for themselves and the kids around them! CIT’s are an invaluable part of creating a positive, youth centered camp environment. We hope you’ll join us!

This CIT program includes a mandatory 2-day training and at least 5 full days of service to SummerKids. Training will include CIT expectations at SummerKids, as well as general job skills training, effective strategies for engaging and inspiring youth, and a practical opportunity for CIT’s to practice their skills and to receive feedback from the CIT Leader. CIT’s are expected to sign up for at least 5 full days throughout the summer to apply their skills and help younger kids make the most out of their camp experience.


Mandatory Training: July 6th and 7th, 2017, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, lunch provided

Service Days: At least 5 days required, M - F, 8:45 am - 4:15 pm, with half an hour lunch (not provided), July 10th - August 18th

Expectation: As the CIT program is also a job training program, CIT’s are expected to commit to the days that they sign up for. In the event of sickness or other unforeseen circumstances, CIT’s must notify the CIT Leader. If a CIT would like to change their scheduled days, they can submit a schedule change request for approval by the Assistant Camp Director.

Other Opportunities: CIT’s aged 16 and older have the opportunity to apply for a paid position with our Morning and/or Afternoon Extended Care program. This opportunity allows CIT’s to take on more leadership in designing and running activities. Participation in the CIT program does NOT guarantee a position with the program.
