Counselor in Training Program

Volunteer and Learn from first-hand experience


The Counselor-in-Training program gives teens the opportunity to learn about environmental education from first-hand experience.

Each participant will complete 6 hours of training with Blue Heron staff, be assigned a mentor who will help them complete a goal worksheet, and complete a performance assessment at the end of their service.

New CITs must commit to assisting for one week of camp, and can volunteer for no more than 4 weeks of camp.

Returning CITs must commit to assisting for one full week of camp, but can volunteer for up to 6 weeks. They will receive a camp t-shirt and a portfolio documenting their work at Blue Heron.

All Counselors in Training must be between the ages 13 and 18, and complete the application prior to registering for the program:
