Some of our campers never want to leave, and we get it!
Instead of growing out of camp, these great minds will be able to stay with us and help younger campers learn to innovate.
The Counselor-in-Training Program at Fun Bot Lab is designed to offer qualified young people an opportunity to prepare for positions as camp counselors. Emphasis is placed upon developing leadership skills, creativity, collaboration, working with children, and other Fun Bot Lab core skills.
Participation in the CIT program is by selection only. Those interested in the program must complete an application process, which includes an application, references, and a phone interview. A parent or guardian is welcome to attend the interview.
It is understood that a CIT may have to arrive late/depart early due to school end/start dates. We will try to accommodate participants as much as possible. All late or early arrivals or departures must be approved by the Site Director or by Courtney Brown, Director of Operations.
