COUNSELOR IN TRAINING (CIT) PROGRAM

P.L.E.X. Kids offers a Counselor in Training (CIT) program available for both traditional and premium summer camp options for kids entering 9-10th grade. The program emphasizes leadership skills, creativity, team building and most importantly fun! By acting as role models for younger campers and assisting in leading aspects of the camp program, it is our goal that our CIT’s walk away having learned new leadership skills, having formed lasting memories with our youngest campers. Priority for placement is given to members, camp graduates, and team members of the SeaHawks & IceHawks youth association.

Please contact Erin Phillips at ephillips@metrorecplex.com for more information.

FAQS

Where is the Plex Summer Camp?

Plex Summer Camp is at the McKendree MetroRecPlex located at 205 Rec Plex Dr. In O’Fallon, IL. Campers will spend the majority of the day inside the facility.

What will my child do throughout the day?

Groups will rotate through different stations each day. Campers will skate, swim & play in the gym every week. The other activities will include crafts, games, team challenges, music & movement activities related to the weekly theme. Campers will have fun exploring science, sport skills, crafts and plan on a special event every Friday along with a Pizza party!

What should my child bring to Summer Camp?

Campers should bring a water bottle, sunscreen and lunch (except for Fridays). Please do not send your child to camp with personal items from home such as blankets, stuffed animals, iPods, Tablets, or any other type of gaming device. We will let you know the dates campers need to bring a change of clothes, swimming suits, beach towels, or any other items that are usually not brought to camp. Typically Monday will be ice skating & then swim a day in the middle of the week.

Who will be watching the campers?

Each group of campers will have designated camp counselor for the week. The group size is 15 campers maximum. Counselors will have experience working with youth, CPR/First Aid Certification and criminal background checks.

Do I need to pack a lunch for my child?

Campers will be responsible to bring a sack lunch every day to camp and at least 2 snacks. No nuts/nut butters please! Campers will get a morning & afternoon snack during the regular camp day that you pack. Campers enrolled in Plex Plus Time will offer a snack during the morning and afternoon.
