Counselor in Training Opportunities (for ages 12+)
Counselors in Training
Campers 12 years and up who enjoy working with their younger peers are invited to join us as CITs (Counselors in Training).
This is a great opportunity for young people who would like to get more involved with childcare opportunities (i.e. babysitting connections, mentor experience, work references). It’s also a great way for them to share their love of the farm with younger kids! You need not have been a camper to become a CIT, but those who are not familiar with the farm are invited to visit beforehand to get a sense of the land and the expectations of Farm Camp.
CITs are expected to read and be familiar with the expectations in our CIT Handbook (which you will receive two weeks before the start of camp) and attend debriefing sessions at 8:20AM Monday and Wednesday mornings before their camp week, as well as at 3:20PM Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
$150/week for CITs . Includes a vegetable share at the end of week, meeting time with the head counselors, access to arts and crafts materials, and great experience in mentoring and leadership.

CIT opportunities are available Monday-Friday, June 10-Aug 23.
