Campers who are entering their senior year of high school or have just graduated are encouraged to participate in the Counselor In Training (CIT) program. CITs have the opportunity to see first-hand what it takes to be a counselor.
In fact, being a CIT is the only way to become a counselor. Each year the CITs that are the best fit for camp are selected to return to join the counseling team.
CITs help counselors rove camp, facilitate activities, check cabins and are role models to younger campers. CITs also work together to accomplish goals, put on their own campfire, and learn what it means to be a team.
New This Year!
- If your camper is eligible to be a CIT, please sign them up on the registration page.
- CITs are required to come up to camp the day before to get a head start on training.
- Although CITs are never fully responsible for the entire cabin, they will begin to learn how to take on a leadership role and see cabin life from a different perspective. Under the supervision of counselors, they will be asked to help in many situations and will be given varied tasks to perform within the cabin. Staff and counselors will be there to guide and teach the CIT at all stages of this process.
For those who register to be a CIT, we will be emailing more information out in June.
This is a meaningful program with many benefits for everyone involved. At the end of the week, CITs will gain lifelong skills in leadership, communication, initiative, responsibility, and teamwork–which will serve them in whatever they choose to do.
