As a GIT (Guide In Training), kids will take on more responsibility through group management, situation assessment, and conflict resolution. They will work directly with their Lead Guide to ensure that all R.A.D. campers have a great day outside. GITs help facilitate activities such as swimming, building forts, or playing games, all while being an extra set of eyes and ears for the Lead Guide.
We are looking for GITs who have always dreamed of being a R.A.D. Guide, and who have insider knowledge of R.A.D. Camps from past participation. Our GITs will get a free seat in the van on their co-guiding days, which can be up to twice per week as availability allows.
Our GITs will kick off the summer by joining our R.A.D. Guides for a training day in mid-June, and then gain experience by leading daily trips into the National Forests of Central Oregon.
By completing 5 days or more of guiding with us, GITs will officially graduate the program, earn some fun swag, and gain some great experiences in the process!
GITs learn leadership skills that will remain with them throughout their life
GITs learn to work together with the Guides to ensure the best experience for the R.A.D. Campers
Listening and following instructions are a key part of being a GIT
Giving clear instructions and communicating with the other campers is an important part of the Guide's role
