NEW! JUNIOR COUNSELOR IN TRAINING PROGRAM
Especially for 6th-8th grade student leaders interested in working with younger campers.
Gain valuable leadership and work experience by being a Junior Counselor in Training (JCIT). Develop skills in communication and teamwork, foster patience, and take on responsibilities that impact the lives of our younger “Farmers-in-Training.” JCITs will work directly with Farm Educators to support Farm Camp programs and will have special time dedicated to skill building.
Some JCITs use their experience to fulfill community service requirements for school or extracurricular clubs. Students enthusiastic about the environment, nature, leadership development, Jewish learning, and/or mentoring preferred.
JCIT Roles and Responsibilities:
- Help create a friendly and fun environment for “Farmers-in-Training” grades K-5
- Develop clear and concise communication by delivering Farm Camp programs
- Practice patience through mentorship of younger campers
- Learn about farm skills and Jewish tradition

Camper interaction: Groups will be comprised of up to 15 campers of mixed ages, up to 3 JCITs, and 2-3 staff in a “pod.” Pods will be comprised of members of the same household during month-long After-School Farm Camp sessions, and similar aged campers during week-long Seasonal (Fall, Spring, and Summer) sessions. Pods of campers will remain together and will not interact with campers from other pods. Campers will not be asked to social distance within their pods.
Health and wellness: At the beginning of each day, camp administration will check for COVID-19 updates from the County of San Diego. A health screening and temperature check will be conducted for campers upon arrival at camp each day. Due to current state regulations, both campers and staff will be required to wear masks throughout the day.
Sanitation: Communal spaces, restrooms, water coolers, shared items, cubbies, and hooks will be cleaned and disinfected several times a day using disinfectant wipes and bleach solutions.
