Counselor In Training Program

New to Funshine this year, our Counselor in Training program is for 13-15-year-olds who are motivated to learn and develop leadership skills while working with kids in a day camp setting. The CIT program is a 3-week session that concentrates on leadership training, team building, skill development, and personal growth. CITs will get opportunities to shadow head camp staff and get hands-on experience engaging and leading campers through activities. The CITs will go through a variety of training to build skills that will make them effective leaders, improve their self-confidence, and offer opportunities to be meaningful role models for our younger campers. 

We encourage all CITs to take complete responsibility for this process themselves, by calling with questions regarding the program, completing the application on their own, and taking the full initiative in this process. 

Counselor in Training Session: Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., June 17 - July 5. *No camp July 4.

Price: $300--this equates to $100 per week. *There is an additional $12 operating fee. A payment plan is available once your position has been offered.
