Excellent training for a future workplace!

The Counselor in Training (CIT) program provides training in leadership skills through a summer camp work experience under the guidance and supervision of a designated CIT Director. Activities include training in areas such as communication skills, teamwork, outdoor activity planning, goal setting, safety and other related subjects. In addition, CITs spend time with campers in order to gain valuable hands-on experience assisting the staff in many areas of the camp program. The many skills learned by the CIT will be useful and valuable in future success in any workplace. Space is very limited and candidates are chosen through an application process. The CIT position is a three or six week unpaid position with the selected applicants incurring the cost.

Completed applications must be returned to the Recreation Office by mid-June. Applications are reviewed by the CIT Director and Recreation staff.  Applicants must be accepted into the program and are not automatically enrolled as explained in the Application Packet.
