Counselors in Training Needed

Three Falls still has openings for a few more Counselors in Training for next summer. Working as a CIT is a great opportunity to learn new skills, make friends, gain a little job experience, and have an awesome time at camp!

CITs are first-year staff members, at least 14 years old (older scouts can also apply). They receive training in leadership and instructional techniques, as well as a variety of Scout skills, and spend time working in several different program areas over the course of the summer, so they can get an overview of the different parts of camp.

CITs are expected to be in camp for staff week, June 26-July 1, and then for all sessions of summer camp, though there is some flexibility for CITs who have plans to attend camp with their troop. We provide room and board and a small honorarium, but CITs are not paid. Most CITs move up to paid camp staff jobs the following year.

If you are interested, download the staff application (see the link at right), fill it out and send it in to the council office. We will get back to you in the next few weeks to discuss the next steps.
