CIT & JC Information

Counselors In Training (CITs) and Junior Counselors (JCs) are essential members of Summer Camp!  CITs and JCs assist in leading classes, setting up and leading evening activities, and caring for children.  Summer Camp staff mentor and coach both CITs and JCs to develop their leadership skills. Both CITs and JCs are evaluated by the CIT and JC Director, which is an essential pathway to becoming a Summer Camp staff member.  Families should not underestimate the skills their child will learn and hone here at camp: caring for and working with children, designing sets, directing movies, interpersonal communication, and organizational skills.

Counselors in Training (CITs)

Junior Counselors (JCs)

Once your camper becomes a CIT, the number of spots available for Summer Camp decreases, as this becomes more of a competitive process to acquire leadership skills.  On average, each week of Summer Camp has space for approximately 100 campers, 30 CITs, and 25 JCs.
