The Township of Tiny offers two Counselor-in-Training (CIT) programs open to youth ages 12 to 17. Both programs provide an excellent opportunity for youth to contribute to the community while developing leadership skills in a fun and safe environment. In order to maximize the experience, the CIT program is structured so that each participant completes a community engagement initiative, volunteers in the day camp setting, and in age appropriate activities. It is our goal that by the end of the program, each participant develops confidence, character and connections with peers.
The Township of Tiny's CIT Training is mandatory for all youth interested in volunteering in Tiny's Summer Day Camp program and/or to collect community service hours. Each Leadership Camp includes a week of meaningful leadership training, a CIT shirt, and a volunteer opportunity in Tiny's Day Camp. CITs will be asked to provide their volunteer week(s) availability at the time of registration so that they can be assigned their volunteer week(s) as soon as possible.
The CIT Program is available for youth ages 12-17 and requires participants to volunteer for one week (40 hours) in the day camp setting.
The CIT Plus Program is available for youth ages 14-17 that have already graduated from our CIT program. CIT Plus participants are required to volunteer for two weeks (80 hours) in the day camp setting.
The CIT and CIT Plus programs were a huge success in 2016, with 40 CITs on board to assist with the Township's Summer Day Camp program, with a waiting list of youth hoping to participate. So sign-up early to avoid disappointment!
