Counselor in Training Program

Youth from ages 14 and older can be enrolled into a complementary C.I.T. Program (Counselors in Training). This unique program is designed to enhance interpersonal and communication skills while fostering independence and self-advocacy. All CIT’s will be matched with a mentor who has successfully completed CIT the previous year. Together they will work to come up with an activity or program to teach the rest of the campers the final day of Adventure Camp.
