Each summer, a number of older campers are chosen to assist the staff as part-time interns to learn the “art of counseling”. C.I.T.’s are campers who enjoy part of their day as a regular camper and part of their day as a teaching assistant. Please see the enclosed form for application to the C.I.T. program. Admittance to the C.I.T. program is selective.
The deadline for C.I.T. applications is Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 2 pm–the same date as registration closing.
