CIT 3Should I Apply to the Counselor in Training Program?

If you are a young woman, aged 16-17, interested in growing your leadership skills by mentoring younger campers and training to teach activities, then this Counselor in Training program (CIT program) is for you. A three to seven week commitment is mandatory for all applicants. CIT’s enjoy a 50% discount on tuition.

What Should I Expect?

As a CIT you will be engaged through our program to find your voice as a mentor, uncover your talents in activities, discover your passion as a leader and realize your value as a member of a talented team of counselors.

In addition, you will be responsible for special projects such as planning Wacky Wednesday events and serving camp as an Officer of the Day (a vital role in maintaining safety and fun at camp). As a CIT, you can expect to meet regularly with the CIT Director (often affectionately referred to as the CIT “Mom”) and to receive specific training tailored to meet the demands and challenges of camp life.

What Will I Learn?

As a Counselor in Training, you will leave camp better prepared for the challenges you may face in college and in life. You will have a better understanding of collaboration and cooperation with others. Your time spent as a CIT will help you to focus on your goals and learn more about yourself and your unique talents.
