Yoetz (Counselors In Training)


As a counselor-in-training (C.I.T.) at Camp Shalom, you’ll gain the skills necessary to lead! This program, led by former camper, CIT, and staff member Sam Wigon, is a challenging and exciting adventure that will give you the skills to effectively work with children of all ages! You will have the chance to practice these skills in a supportive setting with feedback and mentorship, all while learning to enhance your professional and academic development -- all the ingredients for you to develop the life skills you’ll need to succeed at camp, school, and in the workplace. CITs will receive certification in CPR and First Aid and earn 120 hours of community service for each completed 4-week session.

Cancellations and Refunds Policy
- Cancellations and withdrawals must be submitted in writing to Alix Davidson, Camp Director, at alix@apjcc.org.
- Cancellation of entire registration prior to May 21, 2021 will result in a full refund (less the non-refundable deposit). After May 21, your deposits will be converted to a credit in your account. You can use this credit for any future Camp Shalom or APJCC programs.
- If Camp Shalom needs to run on an altered schedule due to COVID-19, you will be presented with the option to change camp weeks, receive a full refund, use your payment to reserve your spot for next year, or to donate your tuition to support Camp Shalom.
- No refunds are given for vacations, sick days, or other absences from camp. Unused camp days cannot be refunded or substituted with additional camp days.
- Subject to availability, a registration transfer from one Camp Shalom program to another may be made at no additional charge up to two weeks prior to the original camp start date through a written request (email, letter, or fax) to the Camp Director. Transfer requests submitted within two weeks of the original camp start date may be possible and will be subject to a $25 administrative fee.
- In its sole and absolute discretion, Camp Shalom may withdraw a camp participant from camp for any reason. If Camp Shalom withdraws a camp participant from camp, a pro-rated refund of camp registration fees will be granted for the period after the withdrawal.
- No credits or refunds will be issued if your child is asked to leave Camp Shalom for breaking the camper behavior contract.
- If a camp participant is voluntarily withdrawn after a camp begins by a parent or guardian, a pro-rated refund of camp registration fees will not be granted by Camp Shalom.
- If Camp Shalom cancels a camp for any reason, you will have the option to receive a credit or a full refund.

Late Registration Policy
In order to help us maintain safe camper-to-counselor ratios, camp registrations received within 2 weeks of a camp’s start date are not guaranteed. Registrations will be confirmed based on staffing and availability.

Please Note
We plan to offer 1-week camp sessions (state and county regulations permitting). We realize that circumstances are rapidly changing due to the COVID pandemic, and for that reason we are offering a very flexible refund policy for summer 2021. If we change dates or cancel sessions, you will receive a full refund, including your deposit.
