One does not need to have gone through the Leader in Training program in order to be eligible for the Counselor In Training program, but it is strongly encouraged for their own benefit. All CIT campers will go home on the following Saturdays between sessions – Saturday July 8, 2023 and Saturday July 22, 2023. Applications for the Counselor In Training program are available starting in early January and are due by April 1.

They will be expected to run a full camp program along with running a class and will be evaluated on it.

As part of the Counselor In Training program...

There will be a lifeguard certification course, so all participants will have the opportunity to become a lifeguard. During the last week of the program, the whole group will go on an overnight canoe trip. Throughout the course of their program, they will be given constant feedback about how they are doing from the Counselor in Training Directors. At the end of the program, the participants who exhibited the most and best attributes of a counselor may be asked back for additional weeks of camp to continue to help out and take on more responsibility.
