Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a counselor at Bryant Pond? Maybe you’ve completed Junior Maine Guide, Bushcraft, or Lakeside Leadership I, and are looking for a new challenge. Lakeside Leadership II is our Counselor in Training program, designed to build on the skills you’ve gained and provide an opportunity to grow and develop as a teen leader at Camp. CIT’s will create lesson plans, work with younger campers, and practice their skills in camp sessions. CIT’s will also head for the Rangeley Lakes on a multiday canoe trip where the friendships, fun and learning continue.
Every Bryant Pond camper knows that one of the pillars of 4-H is “giving our hands to larger service.” CIT’s will participate in at least one service project, gaining skills in planning and follow-through, and earning the sense of satisfaction that comes from giving back to the community.
Our CITs will enjoy special privileges as they embark on this journey developing the skills to be considered as a potential staff member. Upon request, Lakeside Leadership participants will be provided a letter of reference that may be used for college, scholarships, or employment. Space is limited in this program.
