Counselor In Training Program

Ages 13 to 17

 

Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program provided a unique opportunity for Seacoast Science Center member teens, ages 13-17, to acquire leadership and informal teaching skills while learning about the marine environment in a camp setting. CIT’s assist our camp counselors in providing a safe, fun, and meaningful educational experience for our campers. Perspective CIT’s are interviewed to ensure that the program is a good fit and are required to participate in training.

Counselors-in-Training must be members of the Seacoast Science Center at the Family Level or higher.

To apply, please fill submit a Youth Volunteer Application.
