Do you love the outdoors and want to share your enthusiasm and knowledge with others? Do you dream about working at a Girl Scout camp someday? This is the session for you!
Program Aide (PA) training allows girls in 6-10 grades to expand their leadership skills, meet new friends, and make a difference in the lives of younger Girl Scouts. PAs can volunteer at day camps, council events, or with a troop.
Counselor-in-Training (CIT) is a leadership development program for grades 11 & 12 that prepares girls to become camp counselors.
In both the CIT and PA training programs, girls will complete a service project at Camp Koch by creating a Hidden Hammock Hideaway. Girls at future camps will enjoy lounging outdoors in the hammock, seeing, smelling, and hearing nature.
Girls will also have a chance to participate in many traditional camp activities, including archery, knife and tomahawk throwing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, campfire cooking, and swimming. They will even have a chance to rappel off the sides of the cliffs at Camp Koch!
After this session, girls can volunteer for hands-on experience as official PA/CITs during the Weekend Camp Experience on July 15-17, 2022.
