Counsellor in Training Program for 15-17 year-olds

Counsellor in Training Program for 15-17 year-olds

The Counsellor in Training (CIT) Program is designed to develop candidates' skills in leadership, communication and confidence in working with children. This fun and faith-based program includes a week of theory and certification followed by a week of practical experience and mentoring.

Kidston Counsellors-in-Training are registered campers who have completed at least Grade 9. In addition to all the fun that is camping at Kidston, the program offers leadership training and development with the intention of creating a new generation of counsellors. For CITs, this summer is the coming together of their past, present and future at Kidston: the fun and camaraderie they knew as campers, the training, duties and privileges they accept as they take on new responsibilities, and the opportunity to show the skills and attitudes necessary for a future staff position.

Workshops Offered:
• Active and camp-wide games
• Behaviour management techniques
• Spiritual growth / faith exploration
• Communication skills and techniques
• Creative Arts
• Flatwater canoeing
• Goal setting
• Leadership skills
• Problem solving

We accept a maximum of 15 CITs each summer. The qualities we look for in applicants are: positive attitude, enthusiastic and energetic, cooperative and flexible, highly motivated, responsible and reliable, takes initiative, and willing to learn and try new things.

Upon successful completion of both weeks, a CIT may be invited back to counsel at another camp session later in the summer.
