PROGRAM GOALS:

To get a jump-start on your coaching career by learning techniques from our professional coaches.
To offer a meaningful transition from “camper” to “staff member”.
To provide opportunities to participate in Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
To have a positive and rewarding summer, give back to the 6 Points community, and impact camp in a meaningful way.

PROGRAM ELEMENTS:

Training in counseling skills—CITs will participate in programming to develop counseling skills. Training is designed to support CITs as they transition from camper to staff member. Topics will include: homesickness, camper inclusion, how to identify and prevent bullying, development of camper listening skills, health and safety, how to lead programming, and hands-on counseling experience and opportunities to build relationships and serve as role models for younger campers.

Training in coaching skills: CITs will learn to lesson plan for sport majors, run drills, and lead large group activities in sports majors. They will work hands-on with our counseling, coaching and senior staff, who will support and mentor them through this process.

Sports participation: CITs will receive coaching in their sport majors. Sport major time will transition from an emphasis on being coached to an emphasis on coaching others.

Traditions: Participants will get the chance to be a part of creating traditions and rituals that will impact the culture of our camp for many years to come. They will have the opportunity to help with the facilitation of Maccabiah games, lead a Shabbat service, and work on a unique project that will become a part of 6 Points history.

Off site trips: Each intersession, CITs will have the opportunity to travel offsite as a group. Additionally, ocassional mid-session outings will be provided including movies, sporting events, frozen yogurt, etc.
