Counselor-in-Training Program(CIT)

Ages: 13 – 16, or entering 7th – 10th grade
Sessions 1 – 9; $210 Stanford Affiliate // $260 Public

The camp environment provides a unique opportunity for youth to build leadership skills, particularly in assisting counselors with campers. The goals of CIT camp programs are to teach the general skills of leadership that can be used at school, home and community (not just at camp.) CIT’s will learn specific skills for working with youth campers and fellow co-workers, as well as gain experience planning and leading activities. No two weeks are the same as they will have hands-on experience with new campers each week.  CITs will leave this leadership experience with the tools to excel as positive mentors and role-models for their peers and campers alike.
