Counselor Aides in Training (CATs)

The Counselor Aide in Training (CAT) specialized leadership program is designed for campers 11 years old and up. The CAT program is for campers who are interested in gaining more responsibility and independence at camp by becoming a Counselor Aide. In the CAT program campers work with our Head Counselor to learn how to manage camper behavior in age-appropriate ways, understand best practices to encourage campers, how to lead games and activities, self and group reflection techniques and goal-setting. The skills learned in the CAT program are skills that our campers can use outside of camp in school, sports, extracurricular activities, and religious groups. 

The CAT program runs alongside regular day camp days and times. Eligible campers only have to complete this training once. After they graduate from the CAT program, they can be a Counselor Aide later that summer or in future summers. Enrollment space for this program is very limited, so enroll today!
