The Village Camp environment is the ideal setting for teens to go behind the scenes of camp and participate in youth leadership training and development. Our Counselor in Training (CIT) specialty offers teens (15) the chance to come away with leadership skills that will bring lasting benefits to every aspect of their lives, all while having an absolute blast at summer camp.


CITs participate in a variety of hands-on activities, workshops and challenges designed to encourage them to push personal boundaries and become effective, exceptional leaders. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • First Aid/CPR/AED certification

  • Earn volunteer service hours

  • Plan and run your own elective

  • Hone leadership skills that will serve in college and beyond

  • Learn how to be a leader at the Village


We create the perfect balance between having the fun of a camper and learning the skills of a great leader. It’s the best of both worlds!

Jr. Counselor (CIT) (15 years old)



Being a counselor or a nurse at a day summer camp is unlike any job you have had, or any job you will ever have. Being “on-duty ” Mon-Friday, and a role model for campers aged 3 – 15 is the hardest job you will ever have.

  • Can you put the needs of the campers and camp ahead of your needs? You will be responsible for the health and safety of the campers in your charge. You will be responsible to make sure they dress appropriately for the weather, eat properly, drink water, put on sunscreen, behave appropriately in a camp setting, make great friends, attending the correct activities…. And so much more!

  • Can you perform at your best and smile while you are both physically and emotionally exhausted? Oh, you will also be teaching a specialty, a variety of different electives, dressing up for the activity and of course making sure each camper is having fun and feels that you are there for them. And your name was pulled out of the hat and everyone in camp is throwing water balloons at you all day. Can you still keep up your positive energy at that point?

  • Are you a “glass half full”, always looking for the positive kind of person?

                  If you truthfully answered, "YES!" keep                     reading! We are looking for positive                         people from around the world to help us                   create the best summer experience                         possible for our campers. This will mean                   a job experience like no other, so keep                     the following in mind:

  • You will be working long hours and doing things that you will think are insane.

  • This is a job where you will be asked to do crazy things at any moment. If you do not have a wild and crazy side do not waste your time applying.

  • You will leave with some of the best memories of your life.


The Village Camp is an equal opportunity employer, and selects the best matched individual for the job based upon job related qualifications, regardless of race, color, creed, sex, national origin, age, handicap, or other protected groups under state, federal or local equal opportunity laws.
