VBS Kids' Camp CIT/Youth Counselor Program

For students completing 5–12th grades, we are excited to feature the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) and Youth Counselor program, offering leadership training, team-building opportunities, and community service hours. This program is designed for youth volunteers to explore their leadership gifts, make friends, deepen their faith in God, and serve children and their families.

The CIT position is open to middle school students completing 5–8th grades, and high school students who are first-time VBS volunteers. The Youth Counselor position is open to high school students who are returning VBS volunteers. The program includes mandatory training sessions the week prior to the start of VBS.

Please mail or deliver completed forms to First Pres. In addition, we ask all applicants to have a recommendation form (available below) completed by their youth group leader or other church leader.
