CIT Leadership Training

The Counselor-In-Training program is for teens that are ready to take on a leadership role and learn to lead and care for children in a camp setting. With staff guidance and encouragement, CIT's will work with campers, lead games and crafts, and assist on field trips. Besides helping campers in your community, being a CIT is a great experience for young resumes. With two sessions of pre-camp training and two-week session options throughout the summer, your teen is sure to find a leadership opportunity that fits their schedule. Schedule Once a CIT has completed the Leadership training they are able to participate in as many Summer CIT sessions as they want. Sessions are two weeks long and go through our entire camp season. Once trained, a CIT will follow their camp’s schedule which may vary from camp to camp. The CIT coordinator will visit all CITs during their sessions to observe and check. Registration All CITs must first register for a training session before they can register for the camp they wish to be placed at. The training must take place before their intended sessions. Once a CIT is registered for the training and any two week sessions they are set and will receive more information on their camp during training. Leadership Training Participation in leadership training is required prior to the CIT's first day at the program. This year we are offering two sessions of pre-camp training for optimum convenience for our busy CIT's. Teens should register for training using activity code 229021-01 if starting the CIT program during the first four weeks of the summer, and using activity code 229021-02 if starting during the second 6 weeks of the summer. Leadership Training is required to participate as a CIT and incurs an additional cost. In the same way we require our Camp Counselors, Supervisors, and Coordinators to go through training every summer, we also expect our CITs to go through leadership training every summer (even if they have already attended leadership training in a past summer).
