Our 3-week CIT program is geared for 14-to-16-year-olds who are interested in becoming camp counselors or exploring personal growth and leadership experiences. Designed to help young people develop their personal awareness along with the basic skills of camp leadership, the Program is led by an experienced CIT Advisor, with support from the Camp Director and other key camp staff.
Please read the following for a brief outline of CIT Goals and Responsibilities. We encourage parents to review this material with your child. Should your child wish to apply, this PDF application form must be independently completed and submitted by the CIT candidate. Please note, there are two 3-week sessions available for the coming summer, with limited openings available in each session. Upon receipt of the application, your child may be contacted for an interview by the Camp Director. Once a CIT is selected, the parents will be invoiced for the $950 Program fee.
