New Country Day Camp is an oasis for children growing up in New York City. All of our campers and staff ride the camp bus from stops in North Brooklyn and downtown Manhattan to the beautiful Henry Kaufman Campgrounds on Staten Island.
Counselors-in-Training (CIT’s) are enthusiastic, highly motivated, creative, and responsible role models who are 14 or 15 years old and are NOT directly responsible for the well-being of campers at New Country Day Camp. CIT’s instead assist the more seasoned and experienced staff in making sure that our days and programs run smoothly. Jobs for CIT’s include Pool Aide, Office Aide, Division Aide, Unit Aide, and Utility (Maintenance) Aide. CIT’s are expected to work for the full camp season from June 27th to August 17th 2018 and in addition to monetary compensation will also receive professional development training and support from their supervisor as well as their task manages so that when old enough (16) they will be prepared to apply for the role of a full-fledged counselor.
