Counselors-in-Training - Seniors and Ambassadors
As seasoned Girl Scouts, Seniors and Ambassadors have exciting opportunities to mentor younger girls in a camp setting and build skills toward becoming a camp counselor.
Both Seniors and Ambassadors can earn the Counselor-in-Training I award by taking a leadership course on outdoor experiences and working with younger girls over the course of a camp session or through a CIT program. Once the CIT I award is completed, Ambassadors can earn the Counselor-in-Training II award by continuing to build their skills and focusing on a specific area, like riding instruction, lifeguarding or the arts. Steps to earning both awards are outlined in the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.
