Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program Register View Cart

This program is designed for teens entering grades 9-11 in Fall 2020 who are looking for a “hands-on” leadership training experience.  Working under the supervision of our C.I.T. camp counselor/group leaders, trainees will learn and practice the skills necessary to become successful counselors.  Participants will have interaction with Recreation Summer Camp counselors and kids and will help Counselors supervise the campers at our weekly Wednesday field trips.  We are looking for enthusiastic individuals that want to learn how to work with children.  10 max/session.


IMPORTANT!  This is a TWO WEEK certification program. All participants must attend and pass both a Session 1 and Session 2 (sessions do not have to be taken consecutively) to receive a Certificate of Completion.


New!  Certified C.I.T. Extended Training Program!  Once participants have completed and passed the two week/two session C.I.T. certification, they will have the option to sign up for our extended C.I.T. training.  This course will provide more hands-on training so your teen can gain more counselor experience.  You can sign up for as many weeks as you like and it is priced at half the cost of the certification sessions.


Disclaimer:  C.I.T. is a program for teens interested in becoming counselors; it is not childcare. We reserve the right to transfer or cancel your teen’s registration if we deem the C.I.T. program is not a good fit. Completion of this program does not guarantee a position working with Northborough Recreation. In order to apply for a 2021Northborough Recreation Summer Camp Counselor position, applicants must be in the process of completing their sophomore year.
