Purpose of the Counselor Apprentice Internship Program:
The Counselor Apprentice Program at American Inline is designed to offer qualified young people an opportunity to prepare for positions as camp counselors. The program is for those who are fourteen and fifteen years old (and thirteen year old's if you have attended at least three American Inline Camps previously as a participant). Those who complete two (2) summers as an apprentice, that is; three weeks per summer, are eligible to be hired when they turn sixteen years old. During the program, emphasis is placed upon developing leadership skills, sensitivity to children, and program skills. To become an apprentice, students must complete 4 hours of training on Saturday, June 9, 2018 from 1 pm to 4:30pm. Keep your calendar clear that afternoon. The training is required and cannot be made up. The address for the CIT training will be announced in March.
In addition to the training on June 9, a commitment of three weeks is required for two summers. Those three weeks do not have to be in a row. We do like them do to be full, complete weeks. Usually Monday –Friday from 8am to 4pm. You will be placed at summer camp locations based on your preference and ability. You can specify those preferences on forms that will be mailed to you in March.
The Counselor Apprentice program includes assisting the camp director, setting up the camp area, assisting the camp counselors and instructors in setting up drills, demonstrating skills, helping keep the camp site organized and, breakdown of the campsite at the end of day. The apprentice program is a volunteer, non-paying position.
Check your E-mail if you apply. If accepted in the program, you will notified by E-mail. For your convenience, your final apprentice schedule will be confirmed and sent to you by May 15, 2018. However, your parents should go ahead and make family summer vacations plans because the weeks you are an apprentice are somewhat flexible and can be changed if conflicts arise.
