CIT

Grades: 11-12
Dates: July 29 - August 4, 2018
Program Fee: $530

The Counselor in Training (CIT) program provides the opportunity for responsible teens to gain valuable leadership experience. Several CITs are assigned to each group led by one or two counselors. These counselors provide valuable resources for the CITs to learn from. You will interact with campers, counselors, and the teachers and take the opportunity to develop the skills you will need to lead a small group. As a CIT, you will help in daily activities as well as organize evening activities for your group and the whole camp! It is an exciting experience and a good opportunity to make new friends. CITs are not paid and are expected to pay only to cover the cost of room and board for the week.

Campers may apply for the CIT program by filling out the CIT application form. In order to qualify for the CIT program, you must be entering 11th or 12th grade in the Fall. Interview and satisfactory CORI/SORI results are required to be in this program. Contact Assistant Director if you have additional questions.

Application

Counselor

Counselors are at the frontlines of daily activities. They generally oversee most of the day to day aspects of the camp. A counselor or team of two counselors are responsible for a group of around twenty similarly aged campers. They spend most of the day and daily activities with their group and assisting in classes.

In addition, it is their role to help train and mold the Counselors in Training (CIT) for future positions as counselors. Each counselor is unique and we're looking for responsible and creative young adults to fill these roles.

Counselors are usually at least 18 years of age and entering college at the time of their first counselor position and have usually spent several successful years in the CIT programs themselves. Although this is not necessary, it does give them a benefit of knowing the ins and outs of the camp before taking on a demanding leadership position.

Contact Camp Director if you are interested in this type of position. We are always looking for new members to join our team. An interview is generally conducted and satisfactory CORI/SORI results are required to be in this program.
