DUE TO THE DARIEN PUBLIC SCHOOLS LAST DAY OF SCHOOL OUR CIT PROGRAM WILL NOT BEGIN UNTIL FRIDAY, JUNE 22ND.
The CIT Program will be held at the Darien YMCA on Friday, June 22nd. Starting Monday, June 25th CITs will report to Hindley Elementary School
Our Counselor In Training program is a great step for 8th, 9th and 10th graders to learn what it takes to be a Camp Counselor.
The goal of the C.I.T. Program is to find participants that have a true desire to work with children. It is our goal to teach you through hands on experience the aspects of working with children at camp. This will include planning and implementing activities, organization of campers, discipline and at times parent interaction.
Each C.I.T. will be assigned a group each session. They will work with the counselors of their group with all the day to day operations of camp and will participate in all activities. The C.I.T. Coordinator will ask the counselors to evaluate the C.I.T. that was assigned to their group and those evaluations will be used when hiring C.I.T.’s to be paid staff members in the future.
Returning CITs may register during regular registration times. No application is needed.
New CIT’s must fill out the CIT Application and return it to Suzanne Richards. Once applications are received, applicants will be contacted by the CIT Coordinator to set up a short interview beginning in March. You will then receive a Welcome Letter and payment information.
