The CIT program is geared for young people (ages 15-17) who want to be a camp counselor but are not 18 years of age. CIT's learn more about being a camp counselor by assisting staff teach activities and helping with day to day operation of camp. CIT's will work primarily with the Junior Camp (ages 6-8).
CIT's have a unique and sometimes awkward position for they are neither camper nor staff. Past campers often find it a difficult transition from one of being a camper to one of being responsible for campers. There is a big difference. CIT's responsibilities are limited and rarely is a CIT alone with campers, yet it is a big job. A CIT'S major role at camp is to be actively involved in all camp activities, working with staff and acting as an Enthusiastic, Responsible Role Model for campers.
Being a CIT can be a great way to move into the world of employment as it is set up as a transition job with flexibility to each person’s abilities along with supervision and on-the-job training.. The stipend CIT's earn will reflect what they are able to put into the job. Full, partial or no stipends will be determined at the end of each week by an evaluation of the camp directors and mailed at the end of each week. CIT's will be invited to join our staff trainings. All CIT’s will receive a $50 a week discount for attending each week of camp. A full stipend will consist of half of the week’s tuition amounting to $130. A partial stipend will consist of half of this ($65).
