The one-month Sailing Counsellor-in-Training program introduces young sailors – who show interest in both the sport of sailing, and childcare and education – to the responsibilities and daily procedures of Harbourfront Centre’s Junior Sail Camp. The overall goal of the Sailing CIT Program is to train future Sailing Instructors and Camp Counsellors in the day-to-day operations of sailing. This program requires participants to experience both on-land and on-water camp procedures and situations, and be evaluated on their decision-making within those environments. All CITs who complete this course are guaranteed an interview at Harbourfront Centre Sailing & Powerboating for the following year’s Junior Sail Camps Staff.
Prior to arriving at camp, CITs will be asked to fill in an information sheet to give our staff a better understanding of the individual’s motivation. There is also an overnight excursion during each session. CITs are encouraged to attend, as it serves as a valuable tool in team-building. All participants are required to work with a wide range of age groups.
Prerequisites: Must have CANSail certification of any level prior to enrolling in this program.
Certificate: Successful CIT candidates are guaranteed an interview at HCSP for the following year’s Junior Sail Camp Staff.
