Counselors-In-Training (CITs), are former Artworks students who are too old to return as campers, but wish to participate as volunteers. At the age of 13, former students may submit an application to be a teacher's aide. A CIT's responsibilities include:
- Assisting assigned faculty member with classes.
- Running errands within the building for teachers.
- Helping with recreation by participating in the activities.
- Preparing snacks.
- Assisting a teacher with a unit (unit songs and banners, etc.).
- Help with lunch time (serve drinks, mingle with the campers).
CITs are supervised by a staff member at all times. It is expected that a CIT will have good memories of his or her days at Artworks and will maintain an attitude of wholesome fun and relaxed creativity so that the younger students can experience similar good times at summer camp. It is a position of supervised leadership. CITs get training on how to positively lead others with a focus on teamwork and team building.
Being a CIT isn't just work. They get to participate in all program and class activities. In addition, their job is to help the younger campers have as much fun as they had while they attended.
Seven CITs will be selected for each session. Selections are made by the staff as a whole. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. First year CITs pay half tuition while CITs who return for subsequent years pay no tuition. CITs may apply to attend one, two or all three sessions.
