PROGRAM AIDE (PA), or Counselor in Training(CIT)


WHAT IS A PA/CIT
Girls entering 8th grade, CIT 9th and 10th grade, CIT II 11th and 12th grade. may apply for a PA position. Pas /CIT's work directly with younger girls under the supervision of an adult volunteer. Being a PA/CIT gives an opportunity to learn leadership skills and to share their expertise, knowledge, and energy with younger girls. PAs/CIT's  also serve as a role model for younger girls. Those entering 8th grade in the fall of 2017 who did not receive PAIT training the prior year will be placed in a PAIT unit, and should register as a PAIT.  If not trained at AMT the PA Directors must approve the PAIT training as our camp has many specialized trainings and we want the PA/CIT girls to feel confident in leading at AMT.

Council-sponsored Program Aide Core Training (PAIT training) is required to participate in the PA/CIT program.

Program Aides in Training (PAIT):
 


WHAT IS A PAIT-

Program Aides in Training (PAITs) is a term used to identify girls who are in the process of becoming trained PAs. PAITs should be entering 7th grade in the fall of 2019. They will participate in Core Training and leadership activities at camp to become a Program Aide. Those entering 8th grade or above in the fall of 2019 who did NOT receive AMT Approved PAIT training the prior year will also be placed in a PAIT unit, and should register as a PAIT.


NOTE: No Extra Paperwork required
If your child is entering 7th grade, she will automatically be placed into the PAIT unit once the Camper Registration is received.  If your child is missing the PAIT Training and is entering 8th grade or higher, please send an email to
registrar@amtdaycamp.com once the Camper Registration is completed and let us know so we can place her into the PAIT unit.
