Camp Counselor-In-Training (CIT) & Leadership

Under the guidance of adult camp counselors and directors, our Camp Counselor-In-Training (C.I.T.) program assigns participants to cabins to act as leaders and mentors for younger campers.

To qualify as a Counselor-In-Training, teens must be entering 10th, 11th or 12th grade in the fall semester. C.I.T.s receive leadership training and valuable volunteer hours that can be counted towards their high school graduation requirements. All participants must volunteer a minimum of five hours each day, from 10:00am to 3:00pm, and may volunteer more if desired.

Leadership through caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
