Have you been to diabetes camp in Minnesota before? Are you 17 years old? Meet John who has been attending Camp Daypoint and Camp Needlepoint since he was 5 years old! Here is his story and his experience about becoming a Counselor-In-Training (CIT):
“Hello! My name is John Drew, and I LOVE camp! This will be my first year as a counselor at camp and it will be my thirteenth year attending camp! Camp is my favorite thing about summer because diabetics are some of the craziest people I know! In a good way! I also really love to go down to the beach and go canoeing, kayaking and sailing!
This last summer I was a Counselor-In-Training (known as a CIT.) If your chosen as a CIT for the first week of camp you would work with a group of Daypointers (these campers are between the ages of 5 and 9.) You and a YMCA Camp St. Croix or a Needlepoint staff will serve as their counselors for the week. The second week of camp you get assigned to help out with a specific cabin group. It’s a lot of work but it’s a lot of fun!
What else can I say? I Love Camp Needlepoint!”
Camp Registration begins on Friday, February 1st. If you, would be interested in becoming a CIT (and will be 17 years old by the time camp starts) contact Camp Director Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763.593.5333 x6596
