Camp Counselor Positions (Any questions? Contact Laine Sullivan at curator@twcbc.stny.rr.com).

Counselors-in-Training for Ages 14+
Becoming a Counselor in Training is a great way to gain leadership experience while working in nature!
Counselors-in-Training (CITs) are youth leaders aged 14+ who assist the camp counselors in providing a safe and fun camp experience at Tanglewood. They will help lead environmental education activities, games, crafts, songs, stories, hikes, and more. Our CITs will also assist with camp preparation, check-in and check-out, and will serve as a positive role model for children in camp. This is an educational position that will involve being placed with two counselors each session. CIT applications can be found here and are due by May 15th to the CIT Coordinator, Bridget Sharry (volunteer.tanglewood@gmail.com).

Membership fee-waiver:
As always, our goal is to make our unique and fun programs available to all. We have a camp assistance fund created by generous donors. To learn more about the sponsored membership fees for financially eligible families, click on the link.
