The CIT program includes –
- learning all aspects of a cabin counselor’s job at camp
- hands-on training as an instructor or coach in areas they hope to teach as a staff member.
- workshops on such topics as basic child development and behavior management, counseling techniques and best practices, communication and leadership,
environmental stewardship, and community service.
There’s also plenty of fun weaved into the summer for our CITs. They work as a team to plan and implement several evening activities and special events. They have a important role in Eco Challenge and World Games. Weekly trips are planned exclusively for our CITs.
The combination of guidance, training, mentoring and fun, gives our CITs an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. The CIT program is designed to enhance interpersonal and communication skills while fostering independence and self-awareness. Successful participants will come away from this program with valuable leadership skills that will serve them well at home, in school, and in their own community.
