Counselor-in-training is an opportunity for our older campers to take on a leadership role. CITs spend their days shadowing and aiding counselors in the preschool and Hawks group. Group assignments rotate weekly affording CITs an opportunity to work with kids of different ages. Each week is designed to incorporate behind-the-scenes aspects of running a camp. Additionally, on Tuesdays and Thursdays CITs participate in workshops to discuss events of the day, camper behaviors, and ways to handle various situations. This program is a great introduction to the challenges and rewards of entering the workforce. there are several steps to become a CIT:
