High School Seniors
We are excited about a new role for graduated high school seniors! We are no longer doing our previous program called Young Guns and Baby Ruths, but instead creating a fully integrated and paid summer staff role called Counselor in Training (CIT).
What is a Counselor in Training?
The Counselor in Training (CIT) position will offer graduated high school seniors a paid summer staff role where they can work alongside our college summer staff and be mentored by our full-time resident staff. Our desire is that as they serve together with college staff, they will develop lasting community with college students from all over the nation, many of which already attend the same universities our CIT staff will begin attending in the fall. A CIT will have the opportunity to serve in activity classes, work crew, and evening program just like our summer staff! These positions will be available at our family camps, majority of our youth camps, and our traveling off-site camps.
Is this paid?
That’s the best part! The CIT is not a volunteer role, but is now a standard summer staff position. That means the same full benefits we offer our summer staff (click here for more info on benefits) and the following salary:
- First Half CIT (5 weeks): $700
- Second Half CIT (6 weeks) $914
When does it start?
CITs will be required to attend staff orientation with our college staff. We recognize this will be a challenge for many school calendars and we don’t want it to discourage you from applying this summer. Although orientation is required, we can be creative and flexible to work around certain mandatory school events. Check out the dates here.
How do I apply?
Applying for the program is easy. All you have to do is go to the apply page and create an account. You will be able to finish the entire application online except for the interview. Then, come visit us at one of our interview locations.
The application deadline is February 17, 2016 with all applicants knowing something by March 4, 2016.
