Become a counselor!
$225 / / Ages 14+
This program continues to evolve and gain momentum! Yes, the age requirement has changed for this summer. We require a lot from our counselors and all counselors must be at least 15 years old to volunteer for that position. Lead volunteer counselor positions must be 16 and older plus have experience. We strive to provide the very best program we can to our campers and their families. A lot of work goes into that and just like our brochure says - His Barn is more than just riding. Our young leadership program here in the lesson barn helps mold well rounded horse kids who can participate in every aspect of life here during camp season, from feeding horses to taking out the trash to talking to parents. This C.I.T. camp will help open doors for young people who have a heart to serve and be part of our program even if they don't take weekly lessons with us. These leadership skills will go with them throughout their lives! Each summer we will take a very limited number of C.I.T. campers during a regular week of camp. Register early enough and that could be you! You will learn the ins and the outs of being a camp counselor here. You will shadow Jr. Staff kids as well as the program owner/operator, Ms. Jillian and staff. You will work in the barn with the horses as well as in the house with the campers. A camp counselor at His Barn learns to do a little bit of everything so as a C.I.T. you will experience a little bit of everything. You'll play games, eat great lunches and snacks, and learn how to lead bible studies and crafts! You will not ride every day but you will get to ride the horses 2-3 times during your week of camp as well as working in the barn doing chores and providing animal care. This still includes all of their lunches, two snacks plus CITS get additional snacks! This is a serious step towards a rewarding goal of being a camp counselor so please consider it carefully. Parents: please call with any questions! Upon completion of TWO FULL WEEKS OF C.I.T. camp, the C.I.T. will then be eligible to be selected for volunteer Jr. Counselor positions!
