Counselor in Training Program

Do you like the outdoors? Have you ever wanted to be a day camp counselor? Then the Counselor-In-Training Program might be for you!

• A 7 week youth program for teens ages 13-16.
• Learn valuable job training and leadership skills.
• Work side by side with Counselors of the Super Summer Spectacular Program.

General Description

The program runs in the summer Monday through Friday for eight hours. A mandatory training for all CIT applicants will be held prior to camp beginning. At completion of this training each CIT will be placed in a Super Summer Spectacular program where he or she will receive one-on-one training and learn what it takes to become a day camp counselor. Each site can hold 6-8 CITs so registration is on a first come first serve basis.

The CIT Mission

The St. Johns County Recreation and Parks Department Counselor-In-Training program offers past campers educational and leadership experiences, preparing them to be the future leaders of our camps and their communities.

The Cost

The cost to participate in this program is a $50 program fee. This activity fee allows the CIT to participate in all of the camp field trips, swimming events, and receive a shirt for the summer. The program fee and application is due no later than April 29, 2011.
