Counselor In Training Program

We are thrilled to launch our official school vacation camp CIT program for our middle school students. We have had great experiences running this program during our summer camps over the past two years and are excited to expand. 

As a counselor in training, your child will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, contribute to their school community, and learn the responsibilities of being a camp staff member. Each day they will assist Enrichment Supervisors with activities, snack and supervision, as well as engage in play and games with our preschool to 5th grade students.
