Part-Time Early Childhood Education Camp Sameach Program
Welcome to the Westside JCC's
JCamp Junior Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program!
A program for teens entering 8th-12th grades in the fall of 2013, our Counselor-in-Training program is a part time leadership program for 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.
Being a JCamp Junior CIT is a great way for teens to practice leadership, learn about child development, and get experience working with young children. 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.
Session 1 will take place from July 8 - July 26. Session 2 will take place from July 29 - August 16.
CITs will apply to work a shift of either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday/Friday for one whole session. All shifts are from 9:00am-1:00pm. ALL CITs must attend a mandatory training session, which will take place during the week of June 24. Date of training TBD.
Spots are limited. To apply please click here and fill out the online application. Once the application is complete, CITs will be contacted to set up a brief interview prior to being selected for the program.
Once a teen's application is received (see below) 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.
