Counselors In Training (CIT)

Grades: 9 & 10
Session One: June 18 - June 29
Session Two: July 2 - July 13
Staff: LaVenus Harried
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program is designed for those entering 9th and 10th grade who want first-hand leadership and staffing experience, while still enjoying time for social interaction. Our CITs participate in team-building, leadership training, and experience a summer they will never forget. CITs must commit to two weeks with us, but we encourage them to spend all four weeks to get the full experience. Each week will focus on a new set of skills and development topics. Our program is cumulative, so the lessons are progressive from 9th grade to 10th grade.
