CIT (Counselor in Training)

The C.I.T. program is a learning intensive program intended to help individuals who might want to become camp counselors make the transition from camper to staff member. Although the C.I.T.have a great deal of fun and can participate in many camp activities, it also involves a large academic component. Being accepted as a C.I.T. may involve an interview with the C.I.T. Director or Camp Director before camp begins. C.I.T.s are accepted via an application process that will begin in January 2019. 

 

C.I.T. 1 is a 3 week long program for campers entering 11th grade (and who are between the ages of 16 and 18, unless the Camp Director has approved otherwise).

  • CIT 1: Sessions 4-6, July 21st-August 10th

C.I.T. 2 is a 3 week program for campers who are entering 12th grade, and who have completed the C.I.T. 1 program at Camp Kirby.
