Counselor In Training Program


Counselor in Training Program CIT

Each Summer we welcome 14- and 15-year-olds to volunteer their time to work at Playground Camp (Grades 1 - 6) in order to gain experience working with children.  Part of their day is spent in daily training sessions and the rest is spent directly with the other staff and campers. 

The ideal candidate for the CIT Program is a 14- or 15-year-old student who has interest in applying for work as a paid counselor when they turn 16. (Working in the CIT Program DOES NOT guarantee a paid position) 

The CIT Program gives promising 14- and 15-year-olds an opportunity to gain valuable experience by working 7 weeks full time. All CIT candidates must apply and will be interviewed by the Recreation Coordinator for acceptance into the program. CIT's will be evaluated multiple times throughout the Summer based on performance. 

We will be accepting applications in January and will continue to take them until May 1st. You can either drop off the application at our main office (75 Mill Plain Rd) or email them to Gianna at Gsalce@fairfieldct.org. 

Playground Camp Dates 2024: Monday June 24th - Friday August 2nd
