Camp Kirby Resident Camp

Activities at camp are all about trying new things, challenging yourself, and having fun outdoors. We stress camper planning and choice, so kids have a chance to be involved in planning their week. Each week, campers will get to experience all of the activities that are open to their age group. During a typical week-long session, campers can expect to do each activities at least once, with options to do activities more than once if time and scheduling allow.

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).  The dates for C.I.T. 1 will be announced soon!

C.I.T. 2 is a 3 week program for campers entering 12th grade, and who have completed the C.I.T. 1 program. The dates for C.I.T. 2 will be announced soon.
