Older Girl Leadership Opportunities at Camp
Barn Program Aide and Camp Program Aide
Gain valuable experience and have fun at this volunteer work program that expands on your Program Aide training. Camp Program Aides assist in all areas of camp—waterfront, adventure, office, kitchen, crafts, and in units – while Barn Program Aides also aide in barn programs. In between, you’ll get to enjoy camp program areas as a unit.
Counselor in Training (CIT) and Barn Leader in Training (BLIT)
This two-year training program provides you with skills and knowledge you’ll need to become a successful camp staff member. In your first year, spend four weeks brushing up on your camp skills, practicing new leadership skills, and gaining valuable experience working with campers. BLITs additionally spend time at the barn, and must have documented riding/horse care experience.
The next year, refine your skills by observing and assisting experienced staff, and then be fully immersed in working with an assigned camper group. BLITs can expect to also instruct groups at the barn in lessons and horse care.
