Ready to expand your leadership and sailing skills? This specialized CIT program is designed for participants who show an interest in both the sport of sailing, childcare and education. With the guidance of our staff, CITs will further refine their leadership skills in a supportive setting; generous with feedback and mentorship. CITs will receive one week of programming, workshops, and training before embarking on their first placement. This week will focus on learning about supervision, communication, cooperative games, initiative tasks, anti-bullying, camper management and conflict resolution. CITs will also get to refine their own sailing skills and gain an understanding of the day-to-day operations of sailing camps–both on-land and on-water.

CITs will complete 3 separate week-long placements at sailing camps, where they will shadow a working Sailing Counsellor or Instructor, and begin their own interaction with campers as a leader! CITs will come together for one full day per week during their placements, to reflect on their experiences throughout the month, and engage in programming designed to prepare them to work as Sailing Counsellor or Instructor in the future. CITs will receive weekly evaluations so that they receive ongoing and consistent feedback.

Sailors must have CANSail certification of any level prior to enrolling in this program.

Future Opportunity
Successful candidates will receive an interview with Harbourfront Centre Camps, provided they properly apply for the positions available on our website. Please note that we cannot grant volunteer hours for participation in the Counsellor-in-Training program.

* No camps on Wednesday, July 1 and Monday, August 3 due to statutory holidays.
