University of Pennsylvania (Houston Hall & Irvine Auditorium), Philadelphia
http://www.lavnercamps.com, call (215) 767-1354 or email: Info@lavnercamps.com.
The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Leadership Program is for motivated teenagers who want to learn and develop new skills while working with children in a camp setting. CITs receive an orientation-training prior to camp and become certified in CPR/First Aid. During the summer, CITs work under the close supervision of our instructors and camp directors, and an evaluation is provided each week (for learning & improvement purposes.) This program helps to prepare our CITs for future work experience and will also bolster their résumés. It also gives our CITs a chance to have a fun and productive summer where they can work in specialty camps of their choice!
To become part of our CIT Leadership Program, an applicant must “register” on lavnercamps.com and complete an application process. The CIT Leadership Program is offered for every camp that is offered at the University of Pennsylvania this summer. A CIT can choose to work from four to eleven weeks at camp, but a four-week commitment (full week) is the minimum requirement.
