Counselor Trainers: Mary Carter-Vail and
Melinda Merkel Iyer
Do you want to give an amazing camp experience to the next generation of campers? Ready for a summer of hard work and serious responsibility, mixed with outrageous fun and friendship? Train to be a cabin counselor with the CIT program! Delve into a week of intensive learning as you discover the behind-the-scenes side of camp!
We’ll explore leadership styles and conflict management, build skills for working with children, practice handling emergency situations, learn how to lead age-appropriate workshops and games and so much more.
In addition to learning how to be top-notch counselors, CIT’s build connections with each other and become an integral part of the Elementary Camp community. Training takes place in the first half of the day; in the afternoon, CIT’s will assist cabin counselors and program staff to gain practical experience.
Space is limited. Given de Benneville’s ongoing need for counseling staff, applicants should be willing to commit to serve the counseling program for several years after successful completion of the program.
All applicants must be between 14 and 18 and will go through a selection process. A formal CIT application will be sent upon registration and receipt of a $75 deposit. All applications, including two (2) letters of recommendation, must be in by April 5, 2019. Final acceptance notification will be made by May 1, 2019. If a youth is not selected for the program, the $75 deposit will be refunded in full.
Cost: $425 (no discounts available for this program)
