Counselor in Training (CIT)
C.I.T. (ages 16-18)
The C.I.T. program exists to equip youth for ministry by giving them hands-on experience serving campers in our summer camp program. During this time, students will be exploring aspects of ministry and leadership such as studying and teaching the Bible, servant leadership, teamwork and communication. By providing hands-on training to our future generation of leaders, we seek to better prepare and shape our future leaders for ministry in their youth groups, schools, and communities, as well as here at Kenbrook.
Each CIT will be assigned a counselor and a cabin group during their time at Camp. They will stay in the cabin with the cabin group and their assigned counselor. CIT's will participate in a daily meeting with the CIT director and the other CITs. These meeting will focus on spiritual growth and counseling skills, while also allowing individuals feedback to situations that occur during their two-week session.
CIT’s spend considerable time with campers. Because of this, Kenbrook holds our CITs to a high standard. CITs must exhibit character, integrity, and leadership. In addition, they will be expected to place a high priority on their relationship with Jesus and encourage campers to do the same. They, along with the counselor, will love, serve and care for campers and will have opportunities to positively influence kids.
If you are interested, please fill out an application and mail it in as soon as possible, as space is limited! In addition, interested applicants will need to choose two adults who can serve as a reference--this can be a school teacher, coach, youth pastor, mentor or older friend. These references will need to complete a reference form that is included in the application packet and mail or fax it in. Once accepted, instructions will be given to you on how to register and confirm your spot.
*Please note that C.I.T. is a program of Kenbrook Bible Camp. C.I.T. campers are not staff, there is also no compensation given to the participant. There is a program fee for each C.I.T. camper once accepted to the program.
