An Introduction to the Summers @ Lausanne Counselor-in-Training Program
When is the Counselor-in-Training Program?
The training program begins June 5, 2017 with a mandatory pre-training seminar with Lauren Stallings, the CIT Program Coordinator on June 3, 2017. A Counselor-in-Training is an important role in our camp, in which leadership skills, integrity, self-control and patience are nurtured and developed.
All CIT participants will be scheduled for a minimum of 1 session. Each session is for 2 weeks.
Session 1: Week 2, June 5 - 9 and Week 3, June 12 - 16 Session 2: Week 4, June 19 - 23 and Week 5 June 26 - 30 Session 3: Week 6, July 5– July 7 and Week 7, July 10 – July 14 Session 4: Week 8, July 24 – July 28 and Week 9, July 31 – August 4
CIT’s work Monday – Friday from 12:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
What are the requirements to become a Counselor-In-Training?
All interested applicants must first submit an online application and then attend an in-person interview with Lauren Stallings. Applicants must be 12 years of age by May 30, 2017.
Why be a Counselor-in-Training?
Counselors-in-training (CITs) get the best of both worlds, being part camper and part staff. -CITs get to participate in daily camp activities while practicing the skills and responsibilities of Summers @ Lausanne staff. While having fun, they will also learn life skills, practice teamwork, and develop a strong work ethic.
What are the expectations of a Counselor-in-Training?
A great Summers @ Lausanne CIT:
- Models good behavior, sets a positive example, and uses appropriate language (you are a role model and younger campers are watching!)
- Is a friend to all campers. CIT’s encourage nervous or struggling campers and are always inclusive.
- Approaches camp with a positive attitude – enthusiasm is contagious!
- Communicates with the staff he or she is working with. A great CIT asks how they can help, and does their best to perform any tasks or responsibilities given to them.
- Begins to think about camp from a counselor's perspective. They might ask themselves: How can I help make transitions go smoothly? What are the group dynamics within any given activity? What characteristics of the Summers @ Lausanne staff make them good leaders?
- Has fun and works hard!
At Lausanne, we believe the summer camp environment provides a great opportunity for youth like yourself to build leadership skills, particularly in assisting counselors with younger campers. Being a CIT is very different from being a camper, so please read “An Introduction to being a CIT” before making the decision to apply.
- Before completing the application please note the following changes have been made to the 2017 CIT Program:
- Submission of an application does not indicate acceptance into the CIT program.
- All applicants must attend an interview with Lauren Stallings before they will be considered for the CIT program.
- The scheduling and attendance of an interview does not indicate acceptance into the CIT program. All candidates will be notified of acceptance via email within 48 hours of the interview process.
- There is an application process rather than a registration form. Registration is required after acceptance to the program.
- Payments will not be processed until an applicant has received an acceptance letter.
- Acceptance to the CIT program does not guarantee employment for the following summers.
Our program is very selective because our expectations for our participants are very high. At the end of the session, our participants will have increased knowledge of recreational activities and have offered quality experiences to the children they served in a camp setting.
If you should find that the Counselor-in-Training Program is right for you, then please return the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
