CIT Program

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 to obtain an application. Students may enroll in one or both of the three-week sessions. The cost is $1,250 per session.
