Counselor-in-Training II: Tanglefoot
As a Counselor-in-Training (C.I.T.) at Camp Tanglefoot, you’ll participate in an extremely successful Leadership Program directed toward your future in camp counseling and excelling at life. The program is completed over a two-summer period, and the training is based upon the resources from leading child development experts, Girl Scouts of the USA, and the American Camp Association. By participating in this program, you will create a strong foundation for many other future leadership opportunities. After successful completion of the program, C.I.T.'s are eligible to apply to work as camp staff. C.I.T. 1: In this session, you’ll focus on exploring and developing your own leadership style, becoming a responsible leader, understanding and implementing program goals, and learning about contemporary issues and how they impact today’s young people. You’ll learn about child development, outdoor living skills, group dynamics, successful teams, conflict resolution, and creating positive experiences for younger campers. C.I.T. 2: In this session, you’ll expand upon the skills learned C.I.T. 1, and will step up as a leader among your peers. This session includes a week of experience leading younger campers in camp activities and outdoor living skills. You’ll learn to safely facilitate camp programming and gain experience in various group dynamics, while learning more about what it means to be a well-rounded and successful camp counselor.
