Counselors In Training (CIT)

Grades: 9 & 10
Session One: TBA
Session Two: TBA
Staff: LaVenus Harried
Our Counselors in Training (CIT) Program is a skill development camp for those entering 9th and 10th grade who would like to experience leadership, staffing and teamwork while enjoying time for social interaction. Our CITs participate in teambuilding and leadership training as they experience a summer they will never forget. CITs must commit to a two-week session and we strongly encourage participants to spend all four weeks with us to get the full CIT experience. Each week the program will focus on a new set of skills and development topics. Our program is cumulative, so the lessons are progressive from 9th to 10th grade. This program is designed to help prepare this group as they transition to independence as they age out of the Camp world.
