Counselors-in-Training Program Prepares Teens for Leadership

Rec-PAC Counselors-in-Training Program

The Fairfax County Park Authority is seeking applicants to serve as Counselors-in-Training (CITs) during the 2014 summer Rec-PAC program. The CIT program is a wonderful opportunity for teens (age 14-17) who want to further develop their leadership and communication skills, as well as gain experience in planning and conducting activities for young children.

Counselors-in-Training work as part of a team to facilitate activities for children during the summer Rec-PAC program, a structured recreation program with emphasis on leisure skills designed for elementary school children. 

The cost is $135 for six weeks of training, but CITs can commit to as little as one week of camp. Many CITs return year after year, eventually accepting paid Rec-PAC positions when they turn 18 years of age.

Through this summer position, CITs:

  • Gain valuable work experience
  • Develop new skills
  • Practice leadership
  • Explore future career possibilities
  • Work as a team with college-age staff
  • Have fun helping kids

This year the Rec-PAC program will operate in 50 elementary school locations around Fairfax County on weekdays from June 30 through August 7, 2014. During the summer, students will be assigned to a site and work daily from 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

To download the CIT registration packet, visit Rec-PAC Counselor-in-Training Programs or call 703-222-4664 for more information.
