Counselor In Training

Camp Greenway CIT Program

2022 Greenway CIT Application Now Live!

Grade Level 

Rising 10th grade only

2022 Dates & Cost

There is one three-week session of our Counselor in Training program for the summer of 2022. Potential CITs must be able to attend all three weeks, Monday-Friday to be considered for this program.  

Session Date Price 
Session 4 & 5 July 11 - July 29 $1500

Program Description

The Camp Greenway Counselor in Training (CIT) Program is for rising 10th graders who are enjoy interacting with young children and are interested in further developing leadership and communication skills. This program will teach participants how to be a role model and responsible leader while working alongside counselors and other camp staff. CITs will learn to lead and motivate campers, the importance of communication, gain self-confidence, and gain work experience. There will also be dedicated time during the session when they meet with the Leadership Coordinator and have discussions around topics including professionalism, effective communication, and tips on how to best work with children of different ages. 

A CIT's general tasks can include assisting a group’s Counselor and Junior Counselor and their campers, helping with events for theme days, carpool, camp logistics, and more. In addition, CITs may have the opportunity to complete leadership projects, teach campers a new game or a group chant, or assist with camp logistics/admin. CIT’s should demonstrate a positive, friendly attitude, be flexible, and follow all camp policies. Please keep in mind that CITs are not technically staff and will not be responsible for supervising children on their own. 

In order to be considered, CITs need to commit at to the full three weeks we are offering this program. CITs will receive a formal evaluation on their performance from the Leadership Coordinator mid-way through and at the end of their commitment. This experience can give CITs a significant edge the following year should they choose to apply for a Junior Counselor position, however completing the CIT program does not guarantee future employment at Camp Greenway. 

In some instances, the Camp Greenway CIT program may be applied towards community service requirements for graduation. Please check with your individual educational institution to see if it applies. Summer at Maderia staff will happily sign off on any community service hours upon successful completion of the CIT program.
