GSNorCal CIT & WIT Application

The Counselor-in-Training program offers high school girls an opportunity to learn leadership and outdoor skills needed to work with girls in the out of doors. During the CIT program, CIT's will explore the areas of campcraft skills, group dynamics, child development, program planning skills, camp operations and the role of the camp counselor. The training program includes regular hours devoted to workshops, plus actual experience working with children under the supervision of camp staff. The apprentice program is open on a selective basis to those who have demonstrated competence and have had a successful interview.

The application is to be completed by the camper applying for the program. Please submit this application at the same time as your registration for the program. The leadership programs are unique and require more time in the registration process to review applications and references, complete interviews, and make placements. An interview may be required for all programs except Lead On! The deadline for applications and registration to be submitted for leadership programs is MARCH 15, 2014. Placements will be made by April 1, 2014. If you miss these deadlines or have questions about the process, please contact us at camp@girlscoutsnorcal.org or call 1-408-287-4170, ext 4002.

If you need more space to write anything, you may attach a word document to the bottom of the application. You may also attach copies of certificates, letters of recommendation, etc. if you wish.
