Counselor in Training (Ages 12-16)

Counselor in Training Program is currently full. Please check back for openings in Summer 2022.  

Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department will create opportunities for Counselors in Training to learn and lead children at Noble Kids Camp. Counselor in Training participants will grow friendships amongst other teens looking to become leaders in their community. Participation in unique field trip and service opportunities will be included in the weekly activities. Teens will learn skills throughout the program that will continue to benefit them after summer camp is over; this includes SMART Goal planning, working in collaborative group settings and learning the necessary skills for effective decision making.

Counselor in Training camp hours will be from 8am-4pm. In addition to camp activities, participants will be assigned different roles and tasks each week as a part of their camp experience. This may include learning about goal setting and how having goals can enhance self-improvement, helping camp counselors manage younger campers (preschoolers and school aged campers), and participating in a community service project that benefits camp and the parks & recreation department. Community service projects may include, but are not limited to: Walking Noblesville Parks trails from Forest Park and picking up trash, sorting bottle caps for the community bench program, being a leader at preschool camp, etc.

Adventure Days (Field Trips):

Teens will have an opportunity to attend a scheduled Adventure Field Trip every week. On these adventure days, camp counselor staff will focus on a leadership development topic. Adventure outing opportunities will also contain hands-on experiences that reinforce leadership training.

As always, Noble Kids Camp remains committed to maintaining a safe, clean and healthy environment for our staff and campers. In partnership with the American Camping Association (ACA), we are closely monitoring information about COVID-19 and are actively discussing the latest updates from the CDC.

We are planning on providing our campers with a much-needed, fun-filled camp experience. The City of Noblesville follows the Governor’s Color-Coded County plan and will continue monitoring for any changes that could impact camp going forward.  

These are just a few of the precautions we are taking to ensure your camper has a safe summer with us.

· No Contact Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures
· Daily Symptom Checks for Staff and Campers
· Maintaining a 1:12 Ratio of Counselors to Campers
· Implementing an activity schedule to Keep Campers Socially Distant All Day
· Increased Handwashing and Sanitization Policies for Campers and Staff
· Increased Equipment and Facility Sanitization Policies
· Limiting Camper Exposure by Keeping the Same Small Groups of Campers and Counselors the Entire Week 

 Social distancing practices will be in place for all attendees. Per Hamilton County Health Department's COVID-19 recommendations and guidelines, all staff and attendees (ages 8 and older) will be required to wear masks. The City of Noblesville follows the Governor’s Color-Coded County plan and will continue monitoring for any changes that could impact future events.
