CIT Program North

WELCOME TO THE CIT PROGRAM AT
KIDS OF CANADA NORTH


If you LOVE the summer camp atmosphere, enjoy working with kids, like the wilderness and having a good time, then come and join our family in the KIDS OF CANADA NORTH CIT Program.

This comprehensive program is designed with 5 primary focuses:


PLAY

CITs will have the opportunity to learn how to program, create new games, run activity periods, create new drills and run their own activity programs. In our overnight camp environment, creativity, versatility and thinking outside the box become paramount skills in order to be successful.

LEADERSHIP
CITs will learn about: Camp policies and procedures, camper safety, Leadership, how to become a leader and what does it take to be a leader. Other important topics include: how to work with children, how to be a positive role-model, programming sports & activities, and how to be positive, encouraging and friendly while leading our campers.


cit1PLACEMENT

While following our CIT-developed Code Of Ethics, each CIT will have the opportunity to be placed in a group or activity 3-4 times per day. CITs will have the opportunity to interact and display responsibility with our campers 4-14 years of age. We always do our best to accommodate placement requests, however, CITs will be placed at the discretion of the camp.

We take CIT Placement very seriously at camp and this privilege is only given to CITs who display maturity, responsibility and respect for the camp environment. Successful CITs are those who are up for the challenge of learning, becoming a leader, having fun, working with children, making a difference and a contribution, and most of all, truly want to be at camp!

FUN
In addition to living with and being social with amazing CIT cabinmates each week, our CITs will also participate in a few special programs specifically designed for them. From a short out trip off camp property, to a CIT only meal; making friends, networking and cementing relationships is the recipe for happy teenagers in our KIDS OF CANADA NORTH CIT PROGRAM.

cit2EVALUATION
Each CIT will receive daily verbal performance & progress evaluations throughout their participation in the program. At the end of the summer, each CIT and their parents/guardians will receive a copy of the CIT Final Evaluation.
We have the highest of expectations for our CIT’s, whose placements and evaluations are strictly performance & improvement driven. If CITs are hoping to gain future summer employment, full participation in every facet of the CIT program is required.

KIDS OF CANADA is committed to assisting and developing each CIT to their full potential over their 1 or 2 year stay with us. Upon completion of this skill-oriented program, each CIT will be ready to expand their responsibilities and may have the opportunity to become a staff member within our family of summer camps. It is essential that each CIT candidate understands and respects the need for 100% participation and enthusiasm on their part. Initiative, responsibility and a commitment to FUN is required in order to be successful.
