CITs (ages 11-14) are treated as interns, so your ‘pay’ is the experience! Being a CIT allows you the unique opportunity to have a hands on learning experience in a camp environment! This experience will better prepare you to become a full time counselor in the future! We expect you to be: respectful, patient, helpful and responsible at all times.
In June (dates/times TBD), we will have training sessions to learn how to become a CIT at Camp Fish and Game. At that time, you will be able to meet the Director and Senior Counselors that you will be working with and have any of your questions answered. You MUST attend the training session in order to be a CIT at Camp Fish and Game.
When signing up to be a CIT, you must sign up for a minimum of 2 sessions, preferably consecutively.
Throughout the camp day, your job is to assist the counselors, director and activities supervisors with all tasks, including all set-up and clean-up. You are also asked to participate in all camp activities and be a role model for the younger children. The children in your bunk will view you as someone who is ‘in charge.’ You must take this very seriously. It is your job to help the children with anything they need and to guide them through their camp day safely, while ensuring they have LOTS of fun!
We will provide you with Camp Fish and Game T-shirts that we expect you to wear, every day of camp. In addition to the t-shirt, we ask that you wear sneakers and comfortable clothing that you can run around, get dirty and play in! You must also have a swim suit under your clothing and bring a towel, sun block and flip flops for when we go to the pool. You are expected to go in the water, with the campers, EVERY day. We will be spending a LOT of time outside, so we highly recommend a hat as well.
We will provide nut-free snacks and drinks throughout the day. However, you must pack a NUT-FREE lunch for yourself.
