Ideal for those not quite of age, but wish to become a counsellor soon

A four-week program designed to showcase the necessary skills that counsellors require in order to deliver successful and engaging programs in the future. Interactive workshops and experiential learning activities will be facilitated by our senior program staff and directors. CIT's will gain a better understanding of the 'camp' workstyle and Gryphon Camp Policies.

This program will prepare CIT's with the 'tools' necessary to become a great counsellor in the future as they build confidence around working with children and facilitating programs.  CIT's will develop their own Gryphon activities in preparation to facilitate them within the camp community during the month-long program.  As they showcase their new skills, they will be recognized for their hard work & contribution by receiving volunteer hours.

Significant Training: Each CIT will receive a well thought out and designed manual containing resources about how to become a great counsellor. The Gryphon Summer Camps Program Facilitators and Director, work together closely to create a strong support structure for everyone. Our senior camp leadership team are positive role models that will always be there to assist and encourage self-development. Counsellor In Training participants will be seen as candidates for future employment at Gryphon Summer Camps.
