The Counselors in Training (CIT) program teaches responsible teens the essentials of becoming a superior leader, employee, and camp counselor. CITs participate in workshops and discussions to learn about basic child care, behavior management techniques, communication skills, camp organization, activity planning, job application, first aid, and leadership.

For a portion of each day, CITs gain valuable hands-on experience while working in a troop under the guidance of our professional camp staff. They also accompany day campers on their weekly field trips.
