At Passages, we grow our own staff. Most of our 100 staff were day campers, then developed their hard and soft skills through our Rock and River Master Program, Advance Camp and Overnight Camps. All of our Jedi Masters have joined our staff and are the best equipped to share their passions for kayaking and climbing with our campers. Our staff retention is better than 90% year after year.
Although there is no cost for participating in our CIT Program, the CITs earn their keep for sure. Our CIT candidates fill-out their own job application, schedule an interview, receive a 10-page job description and participate in a second phone interview. All hired CITs partake in the same 4½ day training that the Junior Counselors and Counselors receive in addition to being certified in CPR and First Aid.
Applications are available at Peak Experiences year-round. Completed applications should be submitted between September 1st and December 15th (preferably). CIT candidates should be 14 years old before the first week they are scheduled to work (for example, some CITs are 13 at staff training, turn 14 in June and begin as a CIT in July). Our staff members are remarkable and our CITs are no exception. This is a real job, with high expectations, on-going training and unending support. Campers who love our Day Camps think that Advance Camp and our Overnight Camps are even better. Joining the Passages Staff as a CIT blows all of it away.
Happiness is a by-product of achievement. We have the most fun!
