Counselor in Training

Ages: entering grades 8 through 10 – CITs need to be 13 by the start of camp
Hours: 9:00 am-4:00 pm

You’re mature, like to lead and love kids. Make the most of your summer by helping children make the most of theirs. Our Counselor in Training program is specifically designed for teens aged 13 to 15 who want to develop their leadership skills in working with children. Your teen will learn behavior management, team-building, communication and activity leadership by helping counselors work with younger campers. Supervised by our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Directors, your teen will have the hands-on opportunity to assist group counselors, teach activities and plan special events. Plus, occasional day and overnight trips will give them the added chance to discuss camp experiences and build relationships. We only take a small group of applicants, so if you’re seriously interested in taking part, please fill out an application, provide a letter of recommendation and set up a personal interview with us.

To get started, simply complete and submit our on-line Camper Registration Form. Forms are available for all eligible CITs starting December 2, 2019. Preference is given to returning CITs up until December 9th.  After that time, all other applications will be reviewed in order of receipt with preference being given to returning campers.  Once we receive registration forms, we will send you a complete Counselor-in-Training Application Packet, which includes:

  • CIT Application Form
  • Letter of Recommendation
  • Personal Statement
  • Personal Interview

Completed applications are to be returned to us by December 31st, 2019.  CIT Applications received after this time will be considered on a rolling basis and accepted based on remaining availability.
