Counselor in Training Program

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.

CIT training/orientation days for youths new to our farm or the program are available Tuesday April 21, Friday April 24, or Sunday June 6.  These events are intended to give us a chance to share logistics, philosophies, and expectations with incoming CITs.  

Camp costs

$225/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.

Contact Michaela@newvillagefarm.com with questions.

 

CIT opportunities are available Monday-Friday, June 15-Aug 21.
