In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have created an online adaptation of our Counselor in Training Program. We will cover present the information that you would have covered with us at camp through Discussion boards, recorded talks, interactive Zoom meetings and role plays, and challenge you to lead games during Friday Campfire to practice important leadership skills. This virtual experience will culminate in a gathering at camp when it is safe to do so.

In this course, we will cover the basics of Online Learning Design,  participants will create or work on a course of their own. No prior experience needed, but coming with ideas of a project to develop will make this more useful. Work will be required in between sessions.

This course is designed for staff or independent contractors who want to work in the Adventure Programs conducted at 4-H Camp Bristol Hills during the Spring, Summer or Fall.  This is a supplement to the in-person training which is held each year shortly before camp.  This course is NOT a certification, but will help staff to gain a solid understanding of the program before working with campers directly.
