Summer Camp Counselor-In-Training (CIT) 2024

Code of Conduct Agreement

I understand that this is a volunteer position, and my role is to assist the Camp Staff with supervision and activities for children ages 6-12. CIT Standards are outlined below:

 

Must review the policies & procedures outlined for all Group Sports Camps/Clinics/Activities as applicable to this program.

Hours will be coordinated and approved by the Camp Director (Anne Onsgard / 305-395-1464). CITs must Sign-In and Sign-Out for each shift. Sign in/out sheets will be located at the Park Office. Report to the Camp Director for daily assignment and before leaving for the day. The sign in/out sheets will also serve as logs for Community Service Records.

 

The following CIT rules are strictly enforced:

·      Use appropriate language: You are a role model to the campers, so remember eyes and ears are always on you.

·      Be respectful to all: you are an important support role in your group that helps both counselors and campers. Be kind, courteous, and helpful. It is important to work together!

·      Keep your hands to yourself: you need to set a good example, so you must stay away from any contact both in silliness and maliciousness. For everyone’s safety, please do not allow the campers to climb, hang, or sit on you.

·      Do not judge or tease others: we have a zero tolerance for bullying.

·      Participate: It is your job to make campers excited to be here and enjoy their day! The easiest way to do this is to get involved yourself.

No revealing shorts, crop tops, or swimwear; No distressed jeans or pants; No crocs, sandals, or slides. No clothing with inappropriate phrases or symbols. IDs or name tags will be provided.
