Camp CIT

Camp Counselor in Training (CIT) Program

The OTLBC’s Counsellor in Training (CIT) program has been designed for individuals ages 14+ looking to develop the skills and leadership to become a successful camp counsellor. The program will allow CIT’s to work in the camp environment taking on a measure of responsibility and acquiring leadership skills under the instruction of our CIT Coordinator and Camp Director. CIT’s will take part in the standard camp week for a period of three weeks and have an opportunity to implement the skills they have worked on during orientation and instructional sessions.

Many individuals who have completed our CIT program have gone on to become full Tennis Camp Counsellors, both at the OTLBC and other clubs.

Included Activities

  • Leadership development, problem-solving skills, practical information in dealing with campers on a day to day basis;
  • On-court instruction of how to run safe and effective tennis drills
  • Participation in all camp activities on a day-to-day basis;
  • Assisting in the organization of pre- and post-camp activities/supervision;
  • Participating in pool activities
  • Assisting Equipment set up and take down;
  • And so much more!


Before CIT’s can begin their participation in the regular camp week, they must first complete an orientation session. The session will deal with both on and off-court activities, which are necessary in order for CIT’s to be of assistance to campers and counselors. The date will be arranged throughout the first week of camp June 26th-30th. The orientation will provide CIT’s with all materials, assignments, and evaluation forms that will be used throughout their training to provide a strong understanding of expectations.
