Two week minimum commitment.
The Counselor in Training (CIT) program is designed for the 'best of the best' ... young adults who are leaders who welcome challenges. CITs must be great with kids, have tons of energy, be willing to work hard, and like to have fun themselves. The program includes a week of intense leadership training and development for our future counselors and tomorrow's leaders!
CITs choose to work within our General, Sports, or Specialty camps!
Our most successful CITs spend at least one week in Leadership Launch Camp the year before applying to be a CIT or in preparation for being a CIT later in a summer. Leadership Launch does not replace the training week for CITs.
