About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this course is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 16, 2019.

Counselor in Training (CIT) Program

This is an excellent opportunity for campers entering grades 9-12 to earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours and develop great leadership and supervision skills assisting campers between the ages of 4 ½ to 13. CIT programs are available for Arts Journeys, Performing Arts Camp, Multi-Arts Institute, and After Care.

Experience working with children and an interest in visual art, drama, music, or dance is preferred. CITs must be 14 by the start of their camp session and be entering 9th grade in the fall.

CIT Schedules: 8:30am - 3:45pm for camps and 3:15 - 6:30pm for After Care. CITs are required to attend every day in their session. Please do not register your child for a session that will require them to miss any time, including appointments. We depend on CITs to help us maintain a safe, productive environment for our campers so any absences are unexcused.

All CITs must attend one Mandatory Training Session. Please select one of the training dates when you register: Monday, May 20 from 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm, Tuesday, May 21 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm, or Wednesday, May 29 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm. CITs only need to attend one of these sessions.

Tuition: $25 for 1-week camps and After Care, $50 for 2-week camps (prices are the same for members and non-members)

Please note there is a daily limit to the number of SSL hours a CIT can earn. This limit is exceeded when registering to be a CIT for both a full camp day and After Care. Please consult your child's school for regulations.

BlackRock is a pre-approved Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) SSL organization.

There will be staff meetings at least once per week that CITs must attend. Staff meetings take place after the camp day and will require your CIT to stay late. Most meetings are between 30-45 minutes, however they may run longer.

There is no programming on the 4th of July.


CIT Reminders:

All CITs must attend one Mandatory Training Session. Please select one of the training dates when you register: Monday, May 20 from 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm, Tuesday, May 21 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm, or Wednesday, May 29 from 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm. CITs only need to attend one of these sessions.

CIT Schedules: 8:30 am - 3:45 pm for camps and 3:15 - 6:30 pm for After Care. CITs should not arrive before 8:15 am as BlackRock's doors may not be open. CITs are required to have permission to self-dismiss and sign themselves out at the end of their program day. We encourage CITs to head home once their responsibilities have concluded for the day.

CITs are required to attend every day in their session. Please do not register your child for a session that will require them to miss any time, including appointments. We depend on CITs to help us maintain a safe, productive environment for our campers so any absences are unexcused.

All BlackRock Center for the Arts camps are nut-free. This includes peanuts, tree nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc.), items cooked in peanut oil and nut spreads and butters like peanut butter and Nutella.

CITs need to bring a lunch and bottled water with them every day. Lunches will be refrigerated and campers will not have access to microwaves or ovens. Under no circumstances are CITs allowed to leave the building during camp.

CITs are required to attend a weekly staff meeting. Staff meetings take place after the camp day and will require your CIT to stay late. Most meetings are between 30-45 minutes, however they may run longer.

CITs should not bring personal items to camp. Cellphones are not permitted during the camp day and will be confiscated if seen. Parents will have to talk to the Director of Education before the phone is returned to the CIT.

CITs are responsible for their own SSL forms. Forms should be completed before being signed by the Education Director.

CIT handbooks with all camp and CIT rules and regulations will be distributed during the mandatory CIT training sessions. Camps forms such as the Authorization for Medication and Immunization Certificate, and more information about camp and the CIT program can be found at blackrockcenter.org/camps.

Thank you so much for choosing BlackRock as your CIT's summer destination!
