Applications for Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Camper

The nature of the CIT program is to take motivated teenagers and support their leadership development. Basic duties and expectations include, but are not limited to supporting Instructors and Coordinators in setting up camp events, being a role model for campers, and participating in all camp activities.For an applicant to be considered for the CIT program they must be prepared to complete daily written and language expressive assignments (in ASL), individually and as part of group to work with peers. CITs are evaluated on a group and individual basis throughout the program. CITs are expected to understand their role in how to best support campers during a variety of activities.

CITs will be taught to conceptualize, and be ready to take on a cabin on their own in following years. They are mentored and coached by a CIT coordinator and an assigned Counselor. They will take on situations with campers, such as supporting homesickness, helping during art activities, teaching camp skills during group lessons and participating in games.

Ultimately, CITs are expected to become independent leaders able to take on additional responsibilities in preparation for future employment.
