CIT (Counselor in Training)
Jr. Counselor Programs
(ages 13-22 years old)
This program is specifically geared towards young teenagers / adolescents and is designed to teach maturity, responsibility, leadership, and independence. Instead of being a camper, the youth is assigned to a camp group as an assistant to the Teacher/Head Counselors. As an assistant, they are given a variety of responsibilities and duties.
Counselors in Training are monitored daily by the staff members and receive a score based on performance, reliability, and efficiency. The scores then translate into a base salary that is actually paid to the campers at the end of each week. It is the first time that many of our campers experience working and earning money. This program instills a sense of pride and achievement, which becomes one of the many foundation blocks for lifelong success.
