Jr. Counselor in Training before and during Camp
Join us for a leadership development program designed for young teens, entering 7th grade through 9th Grade, who want to learn to become counselors. Through workshops and hands-on experience, you’ll learn about group leadership, program planning, communication, instructional activities, working with kids, health and safety, creating a positive environment, and facilitating adventure teambuilding. Jr. CITs gain in-depth skills in a special interest area such as water sports, games, and regular camp activities.
Being a Jr. CIT is a unique experience—they will learn and grow as a leader while having fun. They learn to be a positive role model for younger campers, and explore being a counselor.
A Jr. CIT’s schedule includes a short time during the day to work directly with younger campers in activities under bilingual staff supervision, as well as time to relax with other CITs and participate in all the camp activities.
Some leadership activities include, but are not limited to: assisting with equipment handling, input in activity preparations, lunch distribution, clean-up, and assisting with drop off and dismissal. All Jr. CIT’s should be prepared to be active every day of camp and have a strong desire to be role models to younger campers.
We accept a limited number of Jr. CITs in order to provide a strong program. Even though, we use a PRE CAMP TRAINING PROGRAM to ensure the Jr. CIT program is a good fit for both your Jr. CIT and Hola Mundo Beach Camp, this summer 2016 camp we are offering training during Camp.
