Preference for Junior Counselor positions in future summers is given to those who successfully complete the CIT program.
The CIT leadership program is a two-week commitment; applicants may choose between one and four sessions. Fee includes leadership training, a CIT-only field trip, a camp T-shirt, and a small stipend (per session) for perfect attendance and consistent high-quality performance.
To become a CIT, complete an online application through the registration system by May 1. Interviews will be scheduled after registration is submitted but before May 15. CIT Training is mandatory and will be held Sunday, May 17. Space is limited and placement is not guaranteed.
