Counselor-in-Training (CIT) will work alongside camp staff and learn the day-to-day operations of camp and what it takes to be employed at Albany Aquatic Center. The program will develop your child’s leadership skills through training, observation and practice. CITs will be assigned to a specific group each week and have a chance to immerse themselves in that age group. CITS are expected to participate in and assist with camp activities, help supervise campers at all times, work under the supervision of the Camp Leader and help provide a fun, positive and safe experience for campers. AAC's goal for our CITS is to make friends, learn leadership skills, and enjoy a summer with AAC! When it comes time to apply as a Lifeguard or Swim instructor, our CITs definitely have a leg up on other applicants. **Must possess YL5 or above, or have taken JR Lifeguard previously to be a CIT, Ages 13-15**
We expect to take 2 or 3 CITs per session of camp which are weekly 6/10-8/9.
