Teen Counselor and Counselor-In-Training

A limited number of Teen Counselor (14 years old) and Counselor-In-Training (CIT) (turning 14 before October 1, 2015) positions are available to qualified teens and older for the camping week of August 3-7, 2015 at Airfield 4-H Center.

Teen Counselors and CITs are expected to be dependable, have good judgment, be energetic and get along well with others. Teen Counselors and CITs are responsible for the safety and well-being of campers in their assigned cabins and activity areas.

This is an opportunity for leadership training and work experience within a recreational setting. Remember, the deadline for your application is April 22, 2015. Since we have several teens interested in this opportunity, you do not want to be late in returning any of these completed necessary forms, as a lack of responsibility may prohibit you from serving as a CIT or Counselor.

Diabetes - A Growing Concern

Diabetes affects nearly one out of every 10 people in the United States.  The dangerous thing about diabetes is that many people do not notice any warning signs and remain undiagnosed . . . increasing their risk for heart disease, stroke, blindness and amputation.

What Can You Do?

  • Talk to your health care provider about testing your blood sugar level.
  • Be active at least 30 minutes a day, most days of the week.
  • Keep you weight at a healthy level.
  • Keep your blood pressure and cholesterol under control.

Diabetes depends on a diagnosis and active self-management.  Take the first step and talk to your health care provider.
