Counselors-in-Training

Farmers 12 years and up who enjoy working with their younger peers are invited to join us as CITs.

This is a great opportunity for young adults who would like to get more involved with childcare opportunities (i.e. babysitting connections, mentorship experience, professional 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 will be responsible for reading and signing our CIT Handbook and attending debriefing sessions at 8:20AM Monday morning before their camp week, as well as at 3:10PM Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

 

CIT Schedule:

Monday 8:20-3, Tuesday/Thursday 8:45-3, Wednesday/Friday 8:45-3:30

 

 

Camp costs

$125/week for CITs. Includes CSA Farm Share at the end of week, meeting time with the head counselors, access to art materials, and the experience of a lifetime! Scholarships available, contact Michaela@newvillagefarm.com
