Being outside and gaining leadership skills? There is nothing better! Learn more about Counselor-in-Training and Riding Instructor-in-Training programs below.

Are you interested in taking your leadership to the next level at camp? You can apply to be a Counselor-in-Training (CIT). Camp Pisgah and Keyauwee Program Center will both offer a CIT I and II program for Girl Scouts entering grades 10-12 this summer.

If you are ready to be a CIT II, you must first apply for the program before registering for your camp session. 

Camp 12

Riding Instructor-in-Training
Volunteers are an integral piece to the Circle C Equestrian Center. Our most popular volunteer program is our Riding Instructor-in-Training program (also known as RIIT program) for girls 13 years and older. Adults with or without a horse background are also welcome to join the training program.

As a Riding Instructor-in-Training, you will learn how to teach others about horses, as well as how to teach about grooming, leading, riding and caring for horses. In return for your help at the barn, you will have the opportunity to ride, broaden your knowledge of horses and meet friends that share a love for horses too!

Being a Riding Instructor-in-Training can be hard work. Volunteers generally help with weekend riding programs. Some of their tasks include: feeding, cleaning stalls, grooming horses, tacking, leading horses on trail rides and assisting in teaching ground and mounted lessons. Volunteers can work as little or as much as they would like. Assistance is usually needed Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. during the school year.
