Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program is designed for the 'best of the best' ... rising 9th graders who are leaders and welcome challenges. CITs must be great with kids, have tons of energy, be willing to work hard, and like to have fun themselves. We are looking for those ready to commit to learning how to be a LINX Camps counselor. The program includes a week of intense leadership training and development for our future counselors and tomorrow's leaders!

Future Employment with LINX
Participation in our CIT program does not guarantee placement as a LINX counselor, or team member, at any point the future.
Campers who distinguished themselves while completing the CIT program are encouraged to apply for a junior staff position at LINX Camps the following summer, which include Junior Counselor, Operations, or Office Runner. Please know that historically there are more CIT graduates than junior staff positions available. CIT graduates who apply, but aren't offered, a junior staff position are welcome to apply for a staff position the following year!
Our four week CIT program requirement gives growing leaders their first taste of an internship opportunity as they work long enough to see the impact they can make on campers! Our program begins with a week of training, with certified staff trainers and experts, which is designed to help teens excel. Then, there is a minimum of three weeks of experience in the field (a camp group). Teens may add on as many additional field weeks as they would like.
Please note, the four+ weeks of the program do not have to be consecutive, although it is beneficial to immediately follow the training week with a field week to solidify learnings.
- Training weeks offered = June 27th or July 11th
- Field weeks offered = July 5th onward
CITs positions are training positions and participants will primarily assist with activities as requested and directed. Our CIT Coordinator is responsible for the daily assignments, supervision, and training of all CITs.
- CITs are not responsible for the leadership, direction, or discipline of camper groups.
- CITs are not included in our published staff to camper ratios.
The rate for summer 2022 is $479 per week.
For families interested in adding bus or lunch to their CIT's summer, the promotional rates at the time of their application email will be honored.
