Summer Camp Counselor in Training Program – The LBIF relies greatly on the support of volunteer efforts year round, but especially in the summer. Our Counselor in Training program (CIT) is great for teens and young adults to get exposure to responsibility and team building by working closely with our assistants and instructors at our Children’s Summer Camp. As a CIT, you will get the chance to work with one of our camps: Tiny Tykes, Early Birds, Creative Arts and Crafts, Marine Biology and Nature Studies. All of the camps have different age ranges and fun and interesting projects that they work on each week that the CIT’s would get to be a part of. This is especially great for those who may be interested in working at camp one day, but are not yet old enough. The CIT’s can volunteer on a daily or weekly basis, either for the whole summer or for certain dates of their interest. As a CIT, you get a schedule of what exactly you will be doing at camp and what your role will be during the time you are volunteering. Your hours are tracked and approved by our Camp Coordinator, so that you can use them towards community service or volunteer credits in the future. You also get an LBIF T-Shirt and you get to experience what it is like to be a part of the LBIF family. What could be better! Sign up to be a CIT today! Email Alison Bozoski abozoski@lbifoundation.org with any questions.

Application available spring of 2019.
