Counsellor-in-Training

Description

The Counsellor-In-Training (CIT) in-person program is a two-week leadership experience that provides opportunities for participants to focus on cooperative learning, leadership, and advanced development of coaching and instruction skills.

Through peer-to-peer feedback, game-based skill development, and opportunities to lead younger camper groups, CITs become more well-rounded leaders and excellent candidates for future Camp Counsellor roles. With the help of their facilitators, CITs seek out opportunities to apply their skills in volunteer roles at camp, or in their communities.

Daily Schedule

The typical day for this camp runs from 8:30am - 5:00pm. CITs can expect to take part in engaging workshops, sporting games, and activity planning. The last period of the day is designated towards leadership skill applications achieved through the facilitation of an activity for a younger camper group.

This Summer, the program also features a one-day First Aid and CPR training course that happens during camp-hours and an additional mandatory one-day online component to be completed at the CITs own time. Completing both components will certify the CIT in First Aid and CPR Level-C.
