Summer Camp MV 2024: CIT Program Age 14 - 18

>>> Locations:  310 Easy Street, Mountain View


Counselor in Training

Through our Counselor in Training (CIT) program, we invite high school students who speak German to immerse themselves into language and teaching for up to five weeks.

CITs do not have to speak German perfectly (in fact, we hope that students will use this opportunity to practice!). They do have to be able to follow all-German instruction and commit to speaking only in German themselves.

CITs may work in the classrooms with only one GISSV educator, or outdoors assisting our camp managers. By assisting in our camp programs for children ages 3 - 10, CITs can:

  • gain experience in teaching and education
  • receive high school volunteer hours
  • practice German
  • participate in fun activities

CIT Schedule

CITS can sign up full-day or half-day for individual or all weeks of camp.
Half-day can be for AM Camp (9am - 2pm) or PM Camp (12pm - 4pm). Full-day is 9am - 4pm.
All CITs participate in lunch, partly to help organize games for campers, and partly so they themselves can participate in the camp community, and have time to interact with instructors and camp managers outside of the classroom as well.

Register as a CIT through our camp registration on a first come, first served basis.

During registration, CITs choose which program(s) they wish to participate in, KinderCamp (Age 3-5), Vorschule Camp (Age 5-6), or Elementary School Camp (Age 6-9). Different programs can be chosen each week. To get a sense of what the different programs are like, click below.

CIT Mentoring

CITs will be mentored by the instructors they pair with for each week. In addition, the camp managers will host weekly CIT Online Meetings, where CITs can ask questions, and discuss their career thoughts (and eat ice cream!). The GISSV's Head of Camp Sophia Angeles also offers CITs to book one-on-one meetings.

CIT Program Certificate

There is a fee to sign up as a CIT, please see registration link or contact: CITs can receive high school volunteer hours for their work, and get a certificate at the end of their volunteer service.
