Roeper summer Day Camp Community Service Program
Counselor-In-Training Community Service Program
Counselor-In-Training (CIT) positions are available for non-Roeper students ages 14 to 16 who have had at least one year off from being a camper. This is a volunteer program that allows students to fulfill community service hour requirements from their schools. Directed by Head Counselors, CITs learn how to interact with, care for and supervise children through hands-on experience. Each CIT is assigned to work with camper groups at various age level throughout the summer. Parental consent for program participation is required. CIT candidates may be interviewed by the Leadership Team prior to acceptance into the program. First year CITs, may volunteer for a maximum of two sessions unless invited to extend their time based on their performance. After the first year CITs may volunteer for up to four sessions.
Roeper Student Community Service Program
Roeper students who are 13 years or older may volunteer as a Counselor-In-Training to complete their community service requirements. We are unable to accept non-Roeper 13 years olds to this program. First year Community Service students are allowed to volunteer a maximum of two sessions at the Roeper Summer Day Camp. Community service volunteers follow the same schedule and routins as CITs. They are held to the same rules and codes of conduct.
