Did you attend summer camp? Will you a camper or something more? Being a counselor-in-training is an enjoyable experience, where you can learn important skills while having fun at summer camp.
Counselors-in-training (CIT) don’t usually get paid, but there are some camps where you’ll make a profit. Even if you don’t get paid with cash or check, you’ll definitely get paid with knowledge and fun.
What are some reasons you might want to become a CIT? Well, being a counselor-in-training, looks good on a college application/resume, and you can complete some of your service learning/community service hours for high school.
There are different types of CITs: a counselor-in-training is one who has not graduated from high school, a junior-counselor-in-training is one who has graduated from high school, but is not yet 18 years of age, and a senior-counselor-in-training is one who has graduated from high school and is 18 years old.
Becoming a CIT can be a very interesting experience if you enjoy the company of kids and the outdoors. While being a counselor-in-training, you’ll be able to make new friends and with today’s modern society, you can keep in touch with them until the next summer. You’ll learn new skills that will help you in everyday life. If you become a CIT or you already were one, let us know how it went. Become a counselor-in-training and have fun, express yourself, and let people know how great this career for kids is! Please consider this choice, Grizzlies, I personally promise you won’t regret it.
