Campers entering 10th or 11th grades in Fall 2019 will qualify for spots in our Camp Counselor in Training (CIT) program.

Whether your campers come one week or the whole summer, our CIT program will keep them engaged while learning important skills. CITs will have opportunities to shadow the age groups as well as participate in camp service projects and specially designed trainings.

Training topics include customer service, planing activities, behavior modification, communication with parents, supervision at the waterfront, goal setting, active listening, working with younger campers, camp communication, service learning, and team work. Each week’s themes differ, so not all campers in this program will have the same experience. All CIT applicants must participate in a formal interview and be available for mandatory staff training June 2019.
