Welcome to our revamped CIT program! This summer, CITs will be trained in CPR and First Aid, have an opportunity to lead activities at our summer camps and learn the skills needed to be a counselor in the future. This program is designed for teens who are interested in working with children and want to be camp counselors in the future. CITs will be responsible for planning and leading activities along with assisting camp groups.
The week of June 20th, we will offer a one week CIT training. For the remainder of the summer, those that participated in our one week training or the 2021 CIT program can register to be CITs for the remaining weeks of the summer (space limited per week). During these CIT Optional Weeks, CITs will be assigned to groups and will assist counselors in creating crafts, leading games, and making camp fun for all the campers.
