Attention Members: Although we do not know the exact time horizon, currently the Weinstein JCC will remain CLOSED until we are directed by the medical and health authorities that it is safe to reopen. We are navigating together the emotional and economic impact social distancing will have on our lives and community; however, it is our collective responsibility to comply with mandates and guidelines to stop the virus from spreading.

Counselors In Training (CIT)

Grades: 9 & 10
Session One: June 15 - June 26
Session Two: June 29 - July 10
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.
