Counselor in Training (CIT)

9TH & 10TH graders, many of you will want to be a CIT…thinking about all the fun you have had as a camper…Please realize that although this would be one of the most fun jobs you will ever have, the focus of the fun shifts from you to them. Counselors are in a position to pass forward the thrill of summer to the younger generation. If accepted you will have fun on the job but you will be there to provide great experiences for our campers, first and foremost!

CIT BENEFITS:

– Experience working with some of the best educators, counselors and role models for young people in the world.

– A head start towards “maybe” becoming a camp counselor at camps. Just being a CIT is not a guarantee to become a paid staff member but is an excellent way to prove your abilities.

– Letters of recommendation for a job well done and work experience towards future employment opportunities.

– A summer of memories that will last a lifetime.

CIT APPLICATIONS


    CIT APPLICATION

    * All applications due by March 30th with formal letter of why “you” want to be a CIT. $150 for 1st year CITs. $75 for 2nd year CITs, interviews are held in April. Please email CIT@campodyssey.org for any questions.

Tuesday
“Boxing” Day
– The entire camp will travel to the Elks pool for swimming, so please equip your camper with everything they will need for swimming: swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, and a change of clothes. All campers are swim tested by Elks staff for ‘deep end’ access. Today, we will celebrate boxes: the versatility of cardboard, the origami folding of paper to create boxes for storage. Come dressed as you see fit or wear your favorite camp t-shirt.

Wednesday
Camp TALENT showcase
– It is no secret to our counselors that the campers here at Camp Odyssey have got talent! This is YOUR chance to shine. Your camper may choose to perform their favorite song, try out stand-up comedy or even choreograph a dance with a few friends. At 2:00 we will begin our show and parents are more than welcome to come and watch!

Thursday
I Love Camp Festival
– The best of camp all wrapped into one day. As counselors, we love camp because we get to be a kid again and play while leading some of the area’s coolest kids (your campers). Campers say they love camp because they get to play exciting games, hang out with friends and just ‘be themselves’! We will have stations based around our favorite themed days.

Friday
To Be Continued
– Today is a day to cherish memories made over the summer as we conclude another fantastic summer at Wicomico Day School. However, today, we will get to sign a memory book and see our friends one more day. Thank you for a great summer! We hope to see you next year!
