The Counsellor in Training (CIT) program is for French speaking students graduating from grades 7 and 8 and looking to take on a bit more of a leadership role in their day camp experience. As a CIT, campers will be paired with a senior counsellor who will supervise them for the length of their registration. During the week, with the support of their counsellor, CITs will lead at least 2 games for their group, and 2 games for the entire campus (during our Grand Jeu module at the end of every day). Throughout the rest of the time, CITs will help their counsellor lead a variety of games, crafts, and activities for their group. Prospective CITs are required to register for a minimum of 2 weeks in order to really develop their leadership skills, and we always encourage students to register for more than just the two.
In preparation for their role as a CIT, campers are required to attend the Leadership Program, held Tuesday July 3rd to Friday July 6th, 2018 at YMCA Cedar Glen. The Leadership Program introduces campers to their role as a CIT, offers an opportunity to meet fellow CITs and Camp Tournesol staff, and develops their leadership, organizational, and teamwork skills. This is a sleepover session. Before the Leadership Program, prospective CITs need to submit their application form and have a teacher submit a reference form.
Candidates selected will be contacted directly as their applications come in, and applications are treated on a first come, first served basis.
There is VERY LIMITED availability on this French camp program so register early.
