How do I become a CIT?
CIT applicants prepare an application and are interviewed before being accepted into the program. Upon being accepted into the program, all participants are required to attend a 1 ½ hour orientation. CITs can expect to work roughly 2 ½ hours a week depending upon which camps they are assisting with. CITs are required to arrive a half hour before camp starts to help prepare and to stay a half hour after to help clean up. CIT responsibilities include the following: being a role model for campers, helping with specific camp activities each week, attending the orientation meeting, and communicating with the CIT Coordinator and camp leaders.
Please be aware everyone who applies and interviews is not guaranteed a spot as a CIT. There are numerous volunteer opportunities at the CCFPD and someone will work with you to find the right fit!
