Counselors in Training
The Counselor in Training program is a four-week program, designed for 15 and 16 year olds, that runs during sessions 2, 3, 4, and 5. This program is for campers who have an interest in applying to become counselors once they turn 16 years of age. 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. Applications for the Counselor In Training program are available starting in January and are due by April 1. This program is designed for them to fine-tune all the skills that they learned in the Leader In Training program. They will be expected to run a full camp program along with running a class and being 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 will be asked back for the final two weeks of camp to continue to help out and take on more responsibility. Each week, CIT campers go home on Saturday morning between sessions and return on Sunday afternoons.
