Finger Lakes Adventure Camp Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program will offer opportunities to campers ages 14 to 16 to get a head start with learning skills that will serve them as they enter the workforce. Participants in this program not only gain technical skills in a variation of watersports, participants will also learn about responsibility, teamwork, leadership and the satisfaction that accompanies helping younger campers learn the skills.

Cost: $495 + $50 for each additional week after training
CIT Training: July 3 – 7, 2023
Location: Myers Park, Lansing, NY

This week of training prepares our CITs for the responsibilities and expectations of being a junior counselor through Paddle-N-More’s Finger Lakes Adventure Camps. They will learn the CIT code of conduct and all that it means to be part of a hard-working and dynamic team while at camp.

As part of the cost of Training Week, CITs will participate in two additional complimentary weeks of our signature Wind-N-Waves camps to practice the skills they gained from the training. The CIT program does not prepare for participation in our Boardsports program as a CIT.

As CITs, Kiara and Annalee obtained the necessary skills to be skilled camp counselors and watesports instructors!
See their smiling faces this summer!
