Learn what it takes to be a great camp counselor!
The Camp Shai CIT & Leadership Development program is designed for rising 9th graders who have an interest in developing leadership skills and learning what it takes to be a great camp counselor (or childcare provider). Plus, we’ll have a ton of fun in the process… because it’s camp, right?!
Week 1: June 17 – 21 | July 15 – 19
CITs will participate in a hands-on training about working with children, including how to facilitate games and activities, ages and stages of child development, and program planning. We will also focus on customer service, professionalism, and how to be a team leader. CIT’s will have the option of taking a CPR/First Aid training.
Week 2: June 24 – 28 | July 22 – 26
This week, CITs will be assigned to a group of campers where they will practice what they learned the week before and be responsible for facilitating activities and overseeing camper care. CITs will also meet each day to reflect on the day, what worked and didn’t work, and problem solve as a group. And, after a lot of fun in the sun, the week will culminate in a big group celebration, Camp Shai-style!
