Counselor in Training Camp

Boys at Camp


C.I.T. (Counselor in Training) Camp is a fun and energetic leadership camp program for 13- to 15-year-olds. This program is the perfect mix of structure and fun, responsibility and free time, learning and leadership opportunities. Teens will love spending time with their peers in the C.I.T. program, learning new skills, and gaining insight into what may become a passion and lead to future camp employment.

Each week C.I.T. campers will interact with the other three traditional camps, where they will have the chance to observe the camp's professional staff in action, help with crafts, games and lessons of all kinds.  They will also help with set-up and clean-up each day; learn basic safety and first-aid skills and so much more. Participants will be given daily responsibilities, and have counselors who will be their mentors during their time at camp. Teens can attend C.I.T. camp for as many weeks of the summer as they like! The staffing ratio is one counselor per 15 campers. Campers are required to purchase a turquoise camp shirt to attend field trips.  Safety and fun are at the forefront during all camp activities.

This summer we've added some new and exciting elements to this camp. Three field trips per week. In addition to all the other fun activities, we will be having a theme for each week.  Each theme will be loosely based from a reality TV show.  This will definitely add some fun and excitement to each week.  Participants are sure to make new friend while competing in challenges with their new team mates.
