Counselors in Training 

Camp Counselor Posing with Campers

Our Counselors-In-Training (CIT) program, designed for 14- to 17-year-old youth, provides leadership training and experience for local teens. CITs assist the staff by being role models for campers, helping campers with activities, leading games, and assisting with supervising, setting up, and cleaning up. This training and experience provides CITs opportunities to learn and practice age-appropriate teaching methods, activity planning, emergency training, and leadership skills.

Required 2-3-day training prior to camp. Applications for this very limited program must be completed by the applicant, not an adult, to be considered for a position. A minimum of a two-week commitment is required. CITs may receive a letter of recommendation, certificate of completion and community service and/or volunteer hours. Download the application below.
