Our CIT program is an extensive and rigorous four-week program which offers selected applicants the opportunity to develop leadership, program, outdoor living, and effective counselor skills. The focus is on small group dynamics, communication skills, teamwork, conflict resolution and value clarification. Selected applicants participate in a variety of exercises and challenges, and also have the opportunity to take the American Red Cross Lifeguarding Course.
The first three weeks of the program will focus on skills and techniques through a variety of exciting lessons. The final week of the program will provide selected CITs the opportunity to experience the life of a camp counselor as they assist counselors in cabins with campers and in program areas. The goal is to have our CITs leave the program with the skills to be effective leaders both at camp, and back home in their communities.
