Counselor In Training Program

Overview

Campers entering 9th and 10th grade can choose to be a Counselor in Training within General, Sports or Specialty Camps!

LINX offers a limited number of Counselor In Training (CIT) positions for rising 9th and 10th graders during selected weeks of the summer. The CIT Program is designed for the 'best of the best' . . . young adults who are leaders who welcome challenges. CITs must be great with kids, have tons of energy, be willing to work hard and like to have fun themselves.

  • Basketball 
  • Dance
  • Flag Football
  • General Camp
  • Lacrosse (boys and girls)
  • Outward Adventures
  • Science
  • Soccer
  • Softball

Typical Day

The day for Counselors In Training consists of:

  • Three periods working under the direction of a LINX Camps Head Counselor or LINX/LX-trained Specialist. The CITs will assist the lead counselor while training younger campers in the latest coaching techniques or general camp activities.
  • Lunch and reflection on group experience
  • Two periods of daily leadership training led by a senior member of the LINX Camps team in which CITs learn about: Being a counselor
    • Taking on leadership roles
    • Handling with difficult situations
    • Teamwork
    • Peer mediation
    • Conflict resolution
    • Character development and
    • Team building
  • Traditional camp games and activities (i.e. rock climbing, archery, boating, fishing and games)
  • Optional end of day free swim

CITs have the option of bringing their own lunch or signing up for the LINX Lunch Box.


The cost is $399 per week ($100 deposit required for registration - deposits are deducted from the final balances due). After March 1st, payment is due in full upon registration.


FUTURE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Campers who have completed the CIT Program (depending on experience and performance) may be eligible to apply for a staff position at LINX Camps as rising 11th graders. Typically applicants must be entering 12th grade or college to work at LINX Camps.


RESPONSIBILITIES

CITs are not included in our published staff to camper ratios. CITs are not responsible for the leadership, direction or discipline of camper groups. CITs positions are training positions and participants will primarily assist with activities as requested and directed. The CIT Coordinator is responsible for daily assignments, supervision and training of all CITs.
