Growing Up Lakeshore: Career Training & Job Opportunities for Teens

Growing Up Lakeshore: Career Training & Job Opportunities for Teens
LSF has enjoyed watching your child grow from a toddler to a teen. From childcare and PeeWee to lessons and leisure play, “growing up Lakeshore” is a blast!  
 
Now that your child is getting older, Lakeshore is here to support the transition of kids growing into young adults. Starting in 8th grade we open the doors for kids to grow in their independence and become successful young adults. Our camp programs offer a great opportunity for teenagers to become leaders.
 

Counselor in Training (CIT)

 
Grades: 7th-9th
Cost: $225/week of camp 
 
Counselors in Training (CIT) work under Lead Counselors and begin to take on new responsibilities with younger kids. From helping to facilitate games and creative activities, to leading the groups through different locations, Counselors in Training learn what it means to take ownership, are mentored by their older peers, and are given a sneak peek into what it means to become a leader. Counselors in Training can submit an application here to be considered. All applications are reviewed by the Camp Management Team to ensure the CIT is ready for this next step.
 
 

Junior Counselor

 
Grades: 10th+

A Junior Counselor gains more responsibility in leading activities, transitions, and pick up/drop off. Junior Counselors start to experience what it means to be a young adult by learning important professional skills such as communication with their team and supervisor, time management, and organization. We hold high expectations for our Junior Counselors so they can continue to grow into future successful roles as they mature. Junior Counselors can submit a job application here and will be contacted for an interview should their application be accepted.
