Counselors in Training (CIT)

Grades: 9 and 10

Our Counselor in Training Program is a skill development camp for those entering 9th and 10th grades, specializing in the vision and importance of leadership, workforce skills and experience working with children. The CIT Program offers opportunities for CITs to socialize and engage with their peers while working as a member of a team through the participation in interactive activities and volunteering opportunities within the JCC Camps. This program offers long lasting memories, builds confidence, and gives participants experiences that can be utilized for future employment.

As our older campers’ transition towards their independence, we are providing six weeks of captivating youth experiences that are broken down in three 2-week sessions. CITs must commit to two weeks, but we encourage them to spend all six weeks with us to get the full experience. Each session will focus on a new set of skills and development topics.

We are so excited to continue this very important camp for our future leaders. Our priority and responsibility is to assist and prepare our youth. Come learn, serve, and grow with us!
