Facility Participation Waiver



SMG SportsPlex Counselor-in-Training Program is designed for young adults & previous camper who display a high level of maturity and judgment, together with a strong interest in athletics & working with children. This program is a co-ed experience intended to provide teens with valuable leadership skills that will serve them well at home, in school, and in their own community.

SMG SportsPlex’s CIT program is designed to enhance interpersonal and communication skills while fostering independence and self-awareness. This program will give young adults age-appropriate challenges that build their skills, confidence and capacity for working with people of all ages. The CIT program includes internship in all aspects of a counselor’s job at camp including training sessions on/practical experience with: basic child development and behavior management, basic first aid, conflict resolution, facility maintenance, counseling techniques and best practices & communication and leadership.

CIT applicants must be 15 years of age. Applicants must complete the CIT application before being considered for the program. Entry into the program is competitive and is based upon the completed application and an interview with a camp director. Please note that program participants are required to attend only one 4-week (5 days per week) CIT session to complete the program but are encouraged to participate longer if possible.

Although still considered a staff “in training”, this CIT will be permanently assigned to assist a head coach for the duration of each week assigned. SMG will be using the CIT program as an opportunity to train/prepare our incoming part-time staff (once 16 years of age) and will utilize this pool of participants as our first option for staff recruitment. As our program provides such tremendous learning experience and future opportunities at SMG, the CITs will receive reduced registration rate of $90/week.

Please Note: We are looking to have completed applications returned by June 1 but may accept late applications in some circumstances.  Applications may be scanned and emailed to or may be dropped off in person at the front desk.  Applicants are not to register for camps until they are accepted into the program.
