Counselor in Training (CIT) Program: Ages 13-14

Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program is for young teens interested in learning and teaching science and nature topics. Teens build leadership skills through team-building activities alongside their peers, and discover firsthand what it’s like to be a camp counselor as well as productive members of their community. Mentor counselors coach CITs as they learn to apply group-facilitation skills and assist younger campers. CITs will leave this program with a sense of teamwork, stronger communication skills, and a better understanding of who they are as leaders. This program is also excellent preparation for our popular Junior Counselor volunteer program. Camp fees and registration apply.
