Hampshire Township Park District Counselor in Training (CIT) program 2024

COUNSELOR IN TRAINING PROGRAM (12-14Y) This is a special program for teen students who are entering in grades 7th through 9th this year or are 12 to 14 years old (as of June 1st 2024) Must be registered by april 26th 2024.

The purpose of this program is to help the older youth of Hampshire area develop leadership skills through a summer work experience. CIT are required to attend an intensive staff training prior to camp starting. CIT must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 weeks of summer camp.

• Performance evaluation given by Unit Head at the end of the summer session

The Counselors in Training Program is a stepping stone between Camper registration (for children entering 1st-5th grades in Fall 2024) and our paid summer staff members (who must have completed freshman year of high school to apply). For that reason, Counselors in Training are registered for the program by their parent/guardian and there is a weekly fee for participation in the program.
