Counsellor in Training  (AGES 14-16) (Summer Months Only)

Please note that there will be NO Counsellor in Training program offered in 2020.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Are you too young to work and too old for camp? Why not consider applying to become a Counsellor in Training (CIT) with the Village’s Recreation & Leisure Services Department? Youth aged 14-16 can volunteer to be a CIT.  To be considered, complete and submit your CIT Application Form 2019 (or pick one up at the Village Office) by Friday, May 24th.

Applicants will be invited to an evening meet & greet on Tuesday, May 28th from 6:30 – 8:00 with Day Camp Counsellors and Recreation staff, and interviews will be held.  CIT’s will be assigned a Day Camp Counsellor “Buddy” and will be given two weeks to volunteer at Day Camp or Little Fingers.  During this time, the CIT’s will assist the Day Camp leaders and test their new skills by leading some games and activities during the week. CIT’s will receive a staff t-shirt and will also be invited to participate in our weekly Day Trips.  At the end of the summer, the CIT’s will be evaluated by their Day Camp “Buddy” and will receive a certificate of completion at an awards ceremony in the last week of Day Camp.

This year, we will invite our CIT’s to attend High Five training which is scheduled for Saturday, June 15th.  For additional information, please contact Michelle in the Recreation & Leisure Services Department at 451-8508 or send her an email.
