The Counselor-In-Training program creates the opportunity for participants to develop leadership and job skills as well as developing a future source of counselors who have been trained in Ferguson Parks and Recreation leadership and program methods. They will help facilitate activities with the kids while gaining self-confidence, job experience, and a sense of responsibility. Successful participation as a CIT in the Summer Adventure Camp program can be used as work experience, professional reference, and a lead toward future employment.
