Amicus Counsellor-in-Training Program

August 8, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm MDT

Bred out of requests for AMICUS campers who are ready to start transitioning to a camp counsellor position this program develops fundamental leadership skills, behaviour management, program planning and opportunities to use this skills with our campers. 

  • 3 weeks in August
  • for students entering Gr. 11 , 12 or just graduated high school

What will CIT participants be doing?

The first part of this program is spent developing group dynamics amongst all CIT participants. Camp program planning skills and basic skills to connect and work with campers are taught and practised. 

After the first week, we begin to have our CIT’s work with campers to lead afternoon choice programs. In the morning, they participate in program planning and counsellor skills development such as learning how to handle camper behaviour management. They have an opportunity to put their skills into action with their instructors close by to help support them.

In their final week, the CIT’s get a taste of camp counsellor life by being with a group of campers and their counsellor for a full week.
