Students Entering Grades 7-9
Summer Explorations at The Elisabeth Morrow School offers and array of programs teens want to attend. Choose from one-week enrichment programs, ISEE/SSAT Test Prep and a three-week CIT (Counselor in Training) Program. Check back soon for more details!
Three week Counselor in Training (CIT) Program offers selected applicants the opportunity to develop self-confidence, an understanding of leadership skills and the skills needed to be an effective and caring counselor through cooperative games, role play activities, observation and hands-on training with younger campers. The focus is on small group dynamics, communication skills, teamwork and value clarification, as well as conflict resolution.
Selected applicants participate in a variety of exercises and challenges, and also have the opportunity to complete a First Aid/CPR course and an American Camping Association online course in Youth Leadership. Our Counselors in Training will also be given the task of organizing a community service event for the camp at the end of each three-week session. The goal is to have our CITs acquire the skills to be effective leaders at camp and in their communities.
Interested students must contact Liza Hards at email@example.com to obtain an application. Students may enroll in one or both of the three-week sessions. The cost is $1,250 per session.
