Counselor Trainers: Mary Carter-Vail and Melinda Merkel Iyer

Do you want to give an amazing 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 UU Elementary School Summer Camp community. Training takes place in the first half of the day; in the afternoon, CIT’s will assist camp 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 years of age. A formal CIT application will be sent upon registration and receipt of deposit. All applications, including letters of recommendation, must be in by April 5, 2020. Final acceptance notification will be made by May 1, 2020.

Cost: $450 (no discounts are available for this program)

Submit registration with a $75/person non-refundable deposit, full balance due one week before start of camp. No refunds will be allowed after Check-in begins on first day of camp.
