Counselor in Training (CIT) Program
The CIT program is for young adults who wish to gain experience and training in one-on-one skills and group leadership, while working with children in a camp setting. CITs assist camp counselors at one of our camp locations. CITs must be entering seventh grade at a minimum, and may sign up for as many one week sessions as they wish. Hours are 8:30 am to 1:00 pm Monday through Friday, and space is limited. The rate for CITs is $80 per week.
