Welcome to the Westside JCC's JCamp Junior Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program!
This is a part time leadership program for middle and high school aged teens, interested in working with some of our youngest campers through JCamp Junior. After attending a mandatory training, CITs will be placed with a group of our preschoolers for their time volunteering. They will play with the children, help with snack time, assist teachers, lend a hand during transitions, and serve as general big buddies and role models for the children they work with.
CITs will apply to work a shift of either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday/Friday. All shifts are from 9:00am-1:00pm. Time spent volunteering with this program will earn CITs community service hours, and at the end of the summer they will be provided with a letter documenting their hours and responsibilities. Teens are expected to treat this position as if it were a job, showing up diligently for shifts, communicating effectively with their supervisor, and working responsibly and maturely with our campers.
ALL CITs must attend a mandatory training session, which will take place during the week of June 24. Date of training TBD. Once a teen's application is received and they are accepted into the program, your family will receive an email introduction with more details of the summer. The full cost of this program is $100/session.
