STAFF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
LIT’s and CIT’s have a new name! Staff Development Program is the same idea, just with a new spin. The LIT and CIT programs were designed to teach our older campers counselor specific skills that would be beneficial to becoming a summer counselor. While these programs were successful, we want to combine these programs into a two year program that will give participants the opportunity to explore departments that interest them.
Staff Development Program (SDP) Mission Statement: To effectively inform and teach participants the Algonquin culture and leadership skills necessary to be successful as a staff member.
SDP1 (14+): June 25th-June 30th
SDP1s will spend a week learning different programs and everything that goes into running a summer camp. Developing both leadership and practical skills. They will observe all different jobs at camp including maintenance, kitchen, and counselors.
SDP2 (15+): July 16th-July 21st Camp; July 23rd-July 28th
SDP2s will be at camp for two weeks and get more in depth training for different programs and camp departments. SDP2’s will spend their first week learning specific skills for their desired department(s) and spend an additional week in those programs as an assistant.
