Counselor in Training (CIT)



Join us this summer to gain leadership skills, work with a team, and learn what it takes to be a summer day camp counselor! CIT participants will learn valuable job skills, including leading a group, public speaking, planning, and organization. Work side by side with experienced Backyard Explorer's day camp counselors to teach art, games, and plan a special event! You'll also learn the basics of CPR and First aid. 


  • Parents and future CIT must attend a virtual 30 min parent meeting in June to meet the Director, Chloe, and go over expectations for the program on May 10th. Email Devynn at for the zoom invitation.
  • Ages 12 to 15 Years
