Our Counselor in Training program is designed to give our next generation of camp leaders the experience to thrive.
Is a career in space science in your future? Our CIT program can help you get ready! Experience all the excitement of a summer at PARI while you learn to lead campers through their own adventure in space. You’ll work with professional space scientists and educators as well as our counselor team of college students actively learning to take humanity on its next big steps.
CITs will spend the summer learning how a real space science education and research center operates and strengthen teamwork and leadership skills. Their goal will be to develop an activity of their own to lead. Have fun, do science, guide campers, and get paid!
Candidates most strongly considered will be those who have never had an opportunity to attend a summer camp or similar experience or who are nominated by a teacher or community leader. Candidates must be at least 17 years old by the time the camp season begins.
Are you a teacher or community leader with a candidate you’d like to nominate? E-mail us or use our contact form and let us know and we’ll send you all the details!
