* I will be looking for returning staff, former CIT’s and staff interested in working part-time to help with these programs.  This could be made up of former staff not free for the whole summer that are interested in working only one or two weekends.

** Starting and ending dates are flexible; we will make accommodations as needed as long as you arrange for make-up training.

*** A core staff will be hired to work on weekend programs from August 15 - September 8.  These positions could be filled by former staff not free for the whole summer that would like to work.
