Our Counselor In Training (CIT) program is a leadership course for 16-year-old who want to learn to instruct and counsel children. In an atmosphere which also addresses personal issues such as self-esteem, personal goal-setting, and self discovery, CIT's learn:
- Leadership styles
- Teaching and counseling techniques
- Child development
- Group processes
- Risk management
- Listening and communication skills
- Conflict mediation
- Validation techniques.
Placements: Every CIT has two six-day placements for trying out instructing and counseling skills. One placement is at an activity area and one is in a camper cabin. CIT's receive feedback and evaluation on each placement. CIT's who stay for full summer have an additional two week placement both at an activity are and in a camper cabin.
Canoe Trip: Each month begins with a four day canoe trip for all CIT's.
Bronze Medallion or Bronze Cross (Swimming Qualifications) - CIT's are expected (but not forced!) to attend Bronze Medallion classes. This qualification is required for all Counselors. CIT's who have their Medallion can take Bronze Cross classes.
Arowhon campers today sing in the same campfire circle where our campers gathered round the campfire almost 70 years ago. The traditions that unite us: the campfire songs, the dining hall high jinks, the early morning paddles in the mist, the same old cheers any time someone does something special. These are what make camp magical. It helps that the majority of our campers come back year after year, and grow up to be camp staff; some are the children and grandchildren of Arowhon campers.
M14518 is located deep in the interior of Algonquin Provincial Park, a 3000 square mile wilderness refuge of 2000 lakes, rivers and forest. We are on our own lake (Tepee Lake) in a magical land where loons pierce the silence with their song, moose munch on water lilies, and the canoe is the vehicle of choice.
The centerpiece of M14518 is the Main Lodge/dining hall, a heritage cedar log building from the 1920s with two stone fireplaces. The Main Lodge and a separate recreation hall/theatre each accommodate 350 people. All our sleeping cabins have bathrooms. Hot showers are located in nearby shower houses.
