Counselor in Training – For campers entering grade 10
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program is a great option for the kids entering 10th grade who would like to be camp counselors in the future, We work closely with our CIT’s empowering them while teaching life skills for the future. They spend most of their day working in an area of camp that interests them, they get evaluated by the teacher that oversees the program and learn what it takes to work in “the real world.” They have a chance to participate in executive discussions throughout the summer as they learn how to become a positive role model and still have fun. Our CIT program is available for a minimum 4 week enrollment up to all 8 weeks.
A junior counselor position is not a guarantee for all CIT’s. Exceptional CIT’s will be given first preference to interview for all junior counselor positions the following year.
