Counselors in Training (9th graders) - $350 per participant/per week

Formerly known as Junior Counselors, this is a wonderful experience engaging incoming 9th graders by preparing them to take on a new leadership role as a camp counselor. CITs learn how to administer games and activities and ensure the well-being and safety of all participants, while being fully supported by Walden West staff dedicated to their success. As we play our games, we'll be fully immersed and learning to apply the skills that each game teaches into every interaction we have with each other and every camper we work with at Walden West. As with the day camp program, CITs will be offered frozen treats at lunch each day and take home s’mores kits on Thursdays. Click the dates to register:

Walden West Summer Counselors and Mentors

The summer counselor program is a leadership opportunity that encourages emotional maturity and builds personal growth and respect for others. Counselors work with elementary to middle school aged children through structured group time and fun free play. Summer camp counselors gain valuable life skills like becoming responsible for themselves and others, learning effective communication, and being open to new and exciting ideas. In addition to leadership skills, the counselor program provides an opportunity to grow as an individual and make a difference in a child’s life.
