Now Hiring: Senior CITs

The best summer job ever!

Do you want to spend your summer splashing around in the Gulf with our campers? This year Sanibel Sea School is looking for volunteer Senior CITs. We will have two tiers to our CIT Program – CIT and Senior CIT. CITs or Counselors in Training (ages 13-16) will register as they normally would for a week of camp and will be enrolled in our leadership program. Senior CITs will be selected through an application process.

We will designate one volunteer Senior CIT per week to assist with our annual summer camp. Senior CITs will utilize the skills learned as a CIT to gain even more experience as young leaders! Please see more details and application instructions below. We thank you for helping us make this the best summer ever!

Senior CITs

Senior CITs will serve as role models for new Counselors in Training. They will supervise CITs on how to best assist counselors throughout the day. Senior CITs will help CITs understand how important they are to our campers’ experience each week. Senior CITs will supervise the CIT workforce during camp activities.

Senior CITs will have at least one year of experience in our CIT program, will be at least 16 years of age, and will have a current lifeguard and CPR/first aid certification by the start of summer camp.

The Senior CIT position is a volunteer position for a one-week term.

Application Requirements:

  • Letter of intent

  • Copies of certifications*

  • A list of the weeks you’re available to work in order of priority

*A certification is not required to apply. If you are not currently certified, please include when you plan to take the course with your application.

Please email to apply! The subject line should read “SCIT Application”

The number of Senior CIT positions is limited. This leadership program has grown immensely, and we are grateful for that, but we cannot guarantee everyone will be assigned a week. If you are not selected as a Senior CIT this year, please enroll as a CIT during those weeks you would like to attend.

We will notify you if selected to be a Senior CIT before camp registration opens. If you wish to come to more than your selected weeks, we would love to have you, please register as a CIT during priority registration.
