Counselor-In-Training Program

Counselor-In-Training Program.

Many campers 14 and older choose to participate in the Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program where they will get a head start learning skills that will serve them as they enter the workforce. This is one of the few opportunities where early teens can gain valuable work experience prior to reaching working age. Participants learn about responsibility, teamwork, and the satisfaction that accompanies a job well done. CITs are integral in the success of our camp and have a great time while serving as a CIT, too! CITs are integral in the success of our camp and have a great time while doing it too!
