Counselor In Training – CIT Program

Ages 13 – 15

Are you interested in becoming a camp counselor? If so, you must participate in the Frankfort Park District Counselor In Training Program. You will never again work this hard and have so much fun! This program is designed to give you the skills that you need in order to be an excellent counselor in the future. Space is limited. CIT’s will be accepted into the program based on the discretion of the Frankfort Park District. An application must be completed and turned into the park district main office in order for a child to be considered for the program. See CIT registration form for fees and details.

So what does a CIT do?

  • Hard work, team-building & fun!
  • Cleaning up after various activities around camp and assisting with games and crafts.
  • Shadowing counselors, assisting sports activities and attending field trips.
  • CITs play a major role in the Before and After Camp activities and assist with planning and implementation of day camp programs.

Although CIT groups are primarily made up of former campers who have aged out of a day camp program, the program is open to anyone who is considering working in a day camp setting.

CIT Qualifications:

To qualify to be a CIT, you must be at least 13 – 15 years of age.

For additional information please email Recreation Supervisor Kristen Morrison at kmorrison@frankfortparks.org or call 815-464-5579.
