The Counselor in Training (CIT) program at Club Greenwood takes young teenagers and teaches them the aptitude needed to prepare them for a real job of their own. Throughout their summer experience, they will learn responsibility, leadership, and maturity. CIT’s will be teamed with experienced Camp Greenwood counselors to ensure that they are learning these essential skills.
Counselors in Training need to be between the ages of 13-15. They need to be approved by the camp directors after being interviewed.
What do CIT campers do?
CIT’s will attend camp as if they were in an interim position at a workplace. They will learn the ins and outs of how the camp is run as a business as well as develop the hands-on skills of planning, organizing and running various activities. CIT’s will always have a Camp Greenwood Counselor with them and will never be left alone with any campers.
Is CIT space limited?
Yes, this program will only allow a small number of campers to develop the skills of the workplace. The smaller numbers allow more one-on-one training and fewer distractions. There will be no more than two CIT per team (10 max/week).
Why create a CIT program?
Here at Camp Greenwood, we have seen many of the children in the area grow up. This is a great opportunity for us to give back to these previous campers and help them grow into productive members with qualifications to become successful with whatever career path they choose!
