Teen Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program

The CIT Program is designed to teach leadership, programming, and communication skills to teenagers, ages 14-18. The program is a trained service-learning opportunity that is defined by community service, leadership training, behavior & conflict management, ages and stages of children, team building, and program planning. As Counselors-In-Training, teenagers will pick a minimum of two camps to volunteer. They will work with youth in an interactive atmosphere to inspire and bond with campers while going through camp activities. The training process teaches teenagers how to lead and teach effectively, interact with youth on a social level, and become overall great summer camp counselors! Participants will also become certified in First Aid and CPR as a part of the program.
