If you are 14+ and looking for a summer leadership experience, consider our Counselor-in-Training program! CITs are youth leaders who assist 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 wil 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.
CITs will have a dedicated weekly meeting with the CIT Coordinator, Bridget, to discuss topics such as: environmental education, camp curriculum design, leadership strategies, emergency protocols, child development and psychology, camp games and crafts, citizen science, and more.
