Our CIT program is typically two summers in length. Bunk CITs are second-year CITs. In order to apply to be a Bunk CIT, one must have completed Activity CIT summer. It is a competitive process, as we only have a certain number of spaces available.
- Understand that the experience of being a counselor-in-training is very different from that of being a camper. It entails responsibility, enthusiasm for working with other campers, and an eagerness to learn from camp counselors.
- Attend a training period prior to younger campers arrival, which will orient CITs to what it means to be a counselor
- Eat meals and participate in all-camp activities along with younger campers and counselors
- Live in a bunk of younger campers as a third “counselor”
- Learn to be a bunk counselor by observing and assisting the other counselors in their bunk
- Learn to lead activities (in the activity area(s) of their choice) for younger campers by observing and assisting counselors in group activities, and to receive feedback from seasoned counselors
- Attend a daily group meeting facilitated by the CIT coordinator to discuss triumphs, challenges, and questions about learning to be a counselor, both in the bunk and in activities
- Give and receive evaluations of their work along with the CIT coordinator throughout the week
- Discuss potential of becoming a counselor in the future
"There are so many ways your camp has positively influenced us as a family...To everyone there, THANK YOU!!! My heart is so full of love and gratitude!!!!!
