Program Description:


Get ready for one of the most important and valuable experiences of your life – camp counselling. The days or weeks ahead of you at summer camp will be challenging and rewarding, exhausting and exhilarating! CIT prepares you for the task, and helps you to become the best camp counsellor that you can be, for your campers and your fellow counsellors. You’ll learn about your responsibilities and role as a counsellor, and receive training from 4-H Alberta’s experienced Summer Camps & Programs Staff. You’ll leave CIT fully equipped with the kind of teamwork, leadership and communication knowledge and skills that others look up to and employers like to see on resumes and hear about in interviews.


So for Summer 2017, all you regional and provincial campers will be embarking on a 4-H style Amazine Race.

This adventurous theme will take you around the world. You'll discover a new country each day, learning about the culture, food and landscapes. All the while you'll be competing in challenges and collecting clues that you hope will allow you to solve the puzzle and reach the finish line first.

Don't miss out on your chance to join us for the ultimate summer camp erxperience, full of detours, roadbloacks, switchbacks and fast forwards as you race around the world.
