Program Aide In Training (PAIT)
Being a Program Aide is an incredible experience, but with it comes responsibility. The PAIT unit is designed to prepare girls to be PAs the year after and beyond. The training teaches the girls about leadership, communication, how to work with younger girls, teaching strategies, and advanced outdoor skills. PAITs will apply their new skills with the youngest campers.
PAITs will also have opportunity to earn the Leader in Action (LIA) award at camp.
... and PAITs will learn kayaking and observation skills as they kayak up Beaver Creek on the Oregon coast!
Girls entering Grade 7 and above
Select the PAIT option when registering for Benton Day Camp. The PAIT program has a limit of 14 girls. A waiting list will be created after 14 applicants have registered.
Girls in Benton Service Unit 29 will have priority. They and those with a full-time adult volunteer may register starting April 21. On May 1, girls in other service units will be accepted in the PAIT program if space allows.
The PAIT program is FULL and a waiting list has been started. We've had HUGE interest in the program this year with many more than 14 registering. We are figuring out how many girls we can provide quality program to in light of current volunteer numbers. Please stay tuned.
