What is the Counselor in Training Program?
The Canton Parks & Recreation Department is seeking responsible, outgoing, students entering 9th grade through 11th grade interested in working with children in a fun, fast-paced, outdoor setting during this upcoming summer. Counselors in Training (C.I.T.) will assist the camp counselors and camp supervisors with planning and leading activities, supervising campers on-site and even get the chance to lead their own weekly activity with their assigned group! C.I.T.s will have weekly meetings with the Recreation Coordinator and Assistant Camp Supervisor to help set goals and build leadership skills, as well as reflect on their weaknesses and learn new techniques and skills to improve.

Benefits of Becoming a C.I.T.
Being a C.I.T. is extremely rewarding and is a great resume builder for college. It provides the chance to build experience and fundamental leadership skills that employers and schools look for. Also, top performing C.I.T.’s will be given preferential consideration during the Canton Parks & Recreation hiring process when they are eligible to apply for a paid position and openings exist.

Application Process
Interested individuals are required to complete the application form listed below and attach a reference letter from a non-family member (teacher, coach, etc). Applications will be accepted starting Wednesday, March 1st. Application materials must be dropped off to the Parks and Recreation Office by no later than Monday, May 1st, to be considered. Candidates will be contacted for interviews on a rolling basis. There are a limited number of C.I.T.'s that will be admitted into the summer 2023 program, so do not wait to apply!

Admission
After completing an interview, successful candidates will receive an acceptance letter into the C.I.T. program and a form to fill out their availability/preferred weeks of attendance. A signed acceptance letter and the availability/preferred weeks form must be sent to the Recreation Coordinator by the date set in the email. After both forms are received, the Recreation Coordinator will reach out for payment (payment amount is dependent on the number of weeks the C.I.T. plans to attend - all participants are required to attend a minimum of 4 weeks).

Pricing
Individual Weeks: $50 Resident / $60 Non-Resident per Week
Full Summer: $400 Resident / $480 Non-Resident
